Improving safety for commuter and recreational cyclists is supported by the Darwin Regional Transport Plan and the Towards Zero Road Safety Action Plan.

The Northern Territory Government is investigating ways in which cycling safety on Bagot Road can be improved and has commissioned a planning study to improve cycling conditions including development of concept design options.

Bagot Road currently includes a shared path for cyclists and pedestrians on the outbound side of the road. However, the path varies in width and pavement quality and crosses multiple accesses and driveways with poor visibility for both cyclists and drivers.

The objective of the planning study is to identify potential options for improved cycling infrastructure on Bagot Road and plan for a strategic cycling route between the northern suburbs and the Stuart Highway.

Development of concept design options will take into consideration both technical requirements and community feedback. Have Your Say, complete the survey and let us know your experience of using Bagot Road as a cyclist, pedestrian and/or a driver and give us your suggestions for how Bagot Road can be improved for cyclists.

If you would like the opportunity to express your feedback and comments in further detail you can do so by emailing Rosie Peace on comms@associatedadvertising.com.au. Please note any questions will be directed to the relevant project representative.

The survey closed on 8 January 2021. Thank you to the 203 people who undertook the survey.
