What? Extension to the existing shared use pedestrian and cycle path on London Road.
When? Works are currently programmed to start before the end of 2019 and be completed before the summer of 2020.
Why? A significant amount of development is underway along London Road. As part of these new housing developments, sections of shared use pedestrian and cycle path have been provided, however the section between West Carr Road and Connaught Road is missing.
Constructing this section would allow for a continuous off-carriageway route from the new developments into the town centre, improving transport links and safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
