Austroads does not specifically identify neighbourhood greenways as an option for providing for cycling, but does offer guidance on traffic management devices and diversion to support local area traffic management schemes.
In New Zealand neighbourhood greenway guidance is available in the Christchurch City Council Major cycleway design guide [PDF, 4.7 MB].
Auckland Transport have developed a Local Path Design Guide(external link) (‘local path’ being their terminology for neighbourhood greenways) that presents a number of tools for developing neighbourhood greenways.
Internationally, the NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide(external link) guidance for ‘Bicycle Boulevards’ can be suitably adapted to design neighbourhood greenways in New Zealand.
A neighbourhood greenway might involve a street that is one-way for motor vehicles but allows people to cycle in either direction (via a contra-flow cycle lane or separated path). The traffic control should be established by a local bylaw. For design considerations and signs requirements, see the guidance on provision for contra-flow cycling.
