When constrained two-way operation does not safely accommodate all users, consider conversion to one-way operation, allocating excess road width for pedestrians and cyclists.
Reduce travel lane width to 3 m in order to avoid speeding. Add raised crossings at intersections to prioritize pedestrians and ensure slow traffic speed. See: Traffic Calming Strategies.
Widen sidewalks to accommodate commercial activity while maintaining the pedestrian clear path. See: Sidewalks.
Repurpose the opposing travel lane as an exclusive, raised contraflow cycle track. Contraflow cycle paths are especially important where the cycling network would otherwise require cyclists to significantly detour. See: Cycle Networks.
Create a shared travel lane with vehicles and cycles in the same direction, with a maximum travel speed of 30 km/h.
Add green infrastructure such as permeable paving under parking spaces, rain gardens, and trees along the sidewalk to help manage stormwater and make the street more appealing.
Parklets should be encouraged to provide additional public space.
