Here’s my idea of how the Two Tunnels Trail could be connected with the CBD and the Railway station via Vogel Street.
I really love @jessica idea of a Dutch-style bicycle roundabout being incorporated into any new roundabout at the intersection of Princes St, Maitland St and South Rd, but I guess it’ll depend on the final form of the bike route going up South Road. If it’s a bidirectional shared pathway on the left hand side of South Road going towards Caversham, tying in with the existing pathway by the motorway, then maybe a Dutch roundabout wouldn’t work here.
My other idea is to cut out a bit of the dog leg behind the War Memorial by running a shared pathway through that corner of the Oval. I already cut across the grass there on my bike when going from Vogel Street towards South Rd and I suspect others do too.
A pathway in front of the War Memorial (but not too close) could be controversial, but people would benefit from having all-weather access that could also be used by veterans in wheelchairs, mobility scooters etc.
Finally, as some have suggested before, perhaps there could be a greater emphasis on making Vogel Street the primary cycling access between South Dunedin and the CBD. It’s a faster and more pleasant option for cycling than the one way system, with no traffic lights.
