Bluebell Road

July to October 2017

This scheme was designed to improve road safety for all users in the Bluebell Road area and to provide better facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. 

Project details:

  • Widening of the shared pedestrian/cycle path which runs along the west side (UEA side) of Bluebell Road between South Park Avenue and the slip road between Bluebell Road and Newmarket Road
  • Widening of the shared pedestrian/cycle path which runs along the slip road between Bluebell Road and Newmarket Road
  • Construction of a new tiger crossing (for both pedestrians and cyclists) to the north of the slip road between Bluebell Road and Newmarket Road

Reasons for work:

  • Improve facilities for cyclists along Bluebell Road by accommodating two-way cycle provision and shared use with pedestrians
  • Give pedestrians and cyclists priority over the side roads and junctions, creating an uninterrupted route
  • Join the blue pedalway, which runs through Eaton, with the scheme on Newmarket Road
