‘Wheelie’ Safe Active Street: Connecting Kiandra Way, High Wycombe

You’ve asked us to improve connectivity, plant more trees, improve road verges, beautify streetscapes and slow down traffic on local roads. (Ref: MARKYT® Community Scorecard Report - 2020 Community Perceptions Survey)

We’re listening!

Kiandra Way, High Wycombe is one of the many places and spaces where we are growing our safer, active roads for all users from those in cars to those walking and riding bikes. Safely connecting the community to their local schools, shops, green spaces, transport links – and most importantly to each other.

We are engaging with the community to inform the design and construction of a Safe Active Street (SAS) route along Kiandra Way and parts of Western Avenue.

This project will connect to the High Wycombe Primary School, the Newburn Road shopping precinct, Scott Reserve, and from there to Edney Primary School. The project will also join the shared path leading to link to the new High Wycombe Train Station.


What is a Safe Active Street?**

Safe Active Streets are local neighbourhood streets, and cycle routes that have a range of traffic calming treatments, such as raised intersection islands, road narrowing, and lots of landscaping.

Features may include:

  • Single-lane slow points, where approaching vehicles should give way to any car or bike already at or passing through the slow point;
  • Raised platforms at intersections;
  • Narrowing street widths by introducing on-street parking and plantings;
  • Using traffic islands and medians to restrict car movements at intersections, while allowing movements in all directions for people on bikes and on foot;
  • Pedestrian or bike crossings;
  • Bicycle symbol road markings in the centre of each unmarked lane, to encourage cyclists to take the lane;
  • Lateral shifts in the carriageway to reduce sight lines (i.e. swapping formalised on-street parking and new tree planting nibs from one side of the street to the other;
  • Additional tree planting and landscaping to make our neighbourhood spaces more attractive places to walk or ride.

What are the benefits?

  • Safe Active Streets look better, friendlier and create a sense of place.
  • Low speed streets reduce traffic noise and significant injury from traffic accidents.
  • Low speed streets improve the safety of our children traveling to school.
  • Save money on petrol and car maintenance by walking and riding – an easy way to add some physical activity to you day and do your bit for Climate Change by reducing air pollution.
  • Get some fresh air and connect with your neighbourhood. Being active increases mental and physical well being.
  • Safe Active Streets increases opportunities for tree planting, expanding our urban canopy and reducing heat sink.
