Beulah Road Bike Route Working Group

Consultation has concluded

With your involvement Council will develop design concepts for a pedestrian and cyclist friendly Beulah Road to change the road environment or by implementing traffic calming measures. As a resident your input is essential to select suitable road treatments. Council seeks your participation on a working group to shape the future of Beulah Road.


Bicycle Strategy

Council’s Bicycle Strategy was adopted in its current form in October 2012. The Strategy identified existing Council and regional routes, including a route on Beulah Road.

This route has long been a popular cycling route link to Norwood using Portrush Road median crossing.

The opportunity

The Motor Accident Commission (MAC) through the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) are offering funding to Councils to undertake safety enhancements on the cycle route that spans from Rundle Street in Adelaide City to Cuthero Terrace, Kensington Gardens.

What needs to be done?

A number of design concepts for Beulah Road are to be developed that incorporate safety requirements and the needs of residents, cyclists, pedestrians and motorists.

What can you to do?

Council is seeking input from Beulah Road residents on what design concepts are acceptable, and what will enhance the neighbourhood. As a resident of Beulah Road you will have valuable knowledge on what concepts will work, and also how any changes will affect you.

Take part in developing these concepts by joining one of two Beulah Road Bike Route Working Groups.

It is intended that the Working Groups will meet a number of times from September to November with the final concept designs
provided to the wider Beulah Road community for comment in late November.

The Beulah Road community will choose a preferred design, or choose not to proceed with the project.

The chosen design will be presented to Council for endorsement in January 2015 to allow construction to be completed on Beulah
Road in mid June 2015.

The Working Groups will be supported by a technical team comprising engineers from Council and DPTI who will advise on the
feasibility of the concept designs.

Update

The Beulah Road Bike Route Working Group engagement concluded on 10 September 2014.

A Working Group was established as Council wanted the community involved in the development of design concepts for a cyclist friendly Beulah Road. This route has long been a popular cycling route link to Norwood using Portrush Road median crossing.

The Working Group was supported by a technical team, comprising of engineers from Council and DPTI, and developed a number of design concepts for Beulah Road.

Two engagements followed the Working Group engagement. These were the Beulah Road Bike Route from 1 to 15 December 2014 and the Beulah Road Bike Route (West of Gurrs Road) from 26 February to 13 March 2015.

The Beulah Road Bike Route engagement was open from 1 to 15 December 2015. The Working Group had developed suggested traffic calming measures and changes to the road environment. The design concepts were developed for Beulah Road, East and West of Gurrs Road and were presented to the community during this period. Council sought community feedback on the proposed solutions.

Council considered the initial engagement results and endorsed works comprising of a driveway link, central medians and line marking on the East section of Beulah Road. Council endorsed improvements to the roundabouts on the West section and to consult with these residents on potential flat top road humps.

Council then sought community feedback on the suggestion of a 40 km/h speed limit or the installation of flat top road humps during the Beulah Road Bike Route (West of Gurrs Road) engagement. This was the second engagement and was open from 26 February to 13 March 2015 for people to have their say.

Council has yet to consider the results of the second engagement process however the works on the approved projects is due to start at the end of May 2015 and be completed by 30 June 2015.

    Beulah Road – Bicycle Route Enhancement

    Background:

    The Beulah Road bicycle enhancement project is funded by the Motor Accident Commission (MAC).  The Department of Planning, Transport, and Infrastructure (DPTI) were successful in their bid to the MAC for a project to enhance safety for bicyclists on what we
    call the Beulah Road route within the Cities of Burnside, Norwood Payneham and St Peters, and Adelaide.

    DPTI are concentrating their portion of the funding on the arterial road crossings of Glynburn, Portrush Road, and Fullarton Road and have recognised that to make their projects work well, the bicycle routes leading to these roads could be enhanced as well. 

     

    Project goals:

    The key goal of this project is to enhance bicyclist safety.  Beulah Road is not wide enough to have a high profile (e.g. off street or separated) cycling path and that the most likely improvements would be calm traffic, or reducing traffic if practical and possible, without affecting adjacent roads.

    Linkage between Council and the project goals:
     
    The City of Burnside has prioritised the Beulah Road route in our Bicycle Strategy.  The Strategy proposes that Beulah Road be a
    significant route and noted that it would benefit from the same “traffic calming”* principles.  Council’s Bicycle Strategy links well with the goals of this DPTI project.

    Council endorsed accepting the funding offer from DPTI and working with the residents on Beulah Road to develop bicycle friendly traffic calming options that will be presented to the wider community for their consideration in December 2014 or January 2015.

    Resident input and design:

    We welcome all resident input and are establishing resident working groups (Beulah Road Bike Route Working Groups) to assist in the development of the design options for Beulah Road by providing thoughts, opinions, proposals, and local knowledge to the process. 

    The working groups will be supported by a Technical Team that consists of engineers from Council and DPTI who will advise on the feasibility of the concept designs and assist to develop the design documents (drawings etc).

    The design with then be presented to the wider community through a formal consultation process to the Beulah Road residents in November 2014. 

    The working group process will ensure that the designs that are presented to the wider community: have been considered by technical experts, have had stakeholder input, and represent the needs of Beulah Road residents. 

    Council will have the final determination on the plan after considering the resident feedback.

    Construction will be undertaken by DPTI early to mid 2015 with a firm completion date of 30 June 2015.
