The next phase of works on the Western cycle corridor will begin 30 August on University Boulevard and finish at the Broadgate Roundabout.
When finished in October 2016, the route will connect the city centre to major destinations including the Queen’s Medical Centre and the University of Nottingham.
These works form part of the City Council’s Nottingham Cycle City Ambition Programme cycle route construction programme, funded by the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, which approved the £6.1m funding on October 15th, 2015.
Further improvements on the Western Cycle Corridor will include:
– Resurfacing the shared path along the north side of University Boulevard to create a better surface for cyclists and pedestrians
– Changing the priority for traffic at the Lace Street and Greenfield Street junctions with City Road to prioritise cycle flow
– Small amendments to the parking bays at the City Road junction with Greenfield Street
– Amendments to the Beeston Road junction with Greenfield Street to connect the on and off street cycle links safely
– Widening of the shared path and removal of the existing uneven footway along Beeston Road, between Greenfield Street and University Boulevard
Councillor Nick McDonald, Portfolio Holder for Business, Growth and Transport at Nottingham City Council, said: “We are really pleased with the progress we have already made on our cycle superhighway works, which are due to complete soon. These works will ultimately provide a brand new cycle route linking the city centre to Woodside Road. Unfortunately, during the works, it will be necessary to introduce further temporary traffic measures that will cause localised restrictions. We will tell residents in advance when works are happening and apologise for any inconvenience that the works cause.”
