A business case being prepared for new separated cycleways along Dunedin's one-way streets is now expected to be made public within two months, the New Zealand Transport Agency says.
The business case had been due by this month, when a final decision was expected on whether the project should proceed and which option was preferred.
However, NZTA projects team manager Simon Underwood said this week it was taking longer than expected for the agency and Dunedin City Council staff to work through ''intricacies''.
As a result, a pre-draft business case was now due to be completed some time next month, when it would be presented to the council-led working party.
A draft would then be made public in late April or early May, followed by a feedback period.
The project aimed to improve safety following the deaths of two cyclists on the state highway, but opponents worried about the loss of between 80 and 284 car parks.
