Nottingham City Council is asking for feedback from residents on proposals to add a cycling corridor to St Ann’s Well Road.
The council is especially interested to hear from residents of St Ann’s and those who commute through the area, including by bike.
St Ann’s Well Road has been identified as a priority route as it serves the north and east of the city where cycling provision is currently lacking compared to other areas.
Improvements for cyclists along St Ann’s Well Road were made during the Covid-19 pandemic, recognising the significant rise in the number of cycling journeys during that time. This scheme aims to build on the changes that were introduced and to provide big improvements to cycle infrastructure along this route.
The St Ann’s Well Road Cycling Corridor scheme is expected to deliver a number of benefits including:
- Dedicated cycle lane to enable safer cycling
- Re-alignment of junctions and upgrade of traffic calming features to reduce vehicle speeds
- Improve mobility as people return to employment/education and need to access services following the Covid-19 pandemic
- Support the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan’s aim for a longer-term increase in active travel
- Contribute to improving air quality and meeting Nottingham’s 2028 Carbon Neutral objective.
Detailed plans can be seen on the Transport Nottingham website and residents are asked to email or post their comments by 10 May.
A public event will also be held on Wednesday 19 April from 2-5pm in the Conference Room at St Ann’s Library, where people can view the plans in person and discuss the proposals with the team.
Chris Carter, Head of Transport Strategy at Nottingham City Council, said: “As part of our ambition that Nottingham people make healthier, more sustainable travel choices, it is our responsibility to enable those choices by making our streets safer and more friendly spaces for walking and cycling.
“I hope to see many local people taking part in this consultation before it closes on 10 May, and that the team gets a good turnout to the consultation event on 19 April at St Ann’s Library.”
