- Where: College Place
- When: COMPLETE
- What: Installing a cycleway on College Place, linking Dorset Street to London Road
- Why: To link the cycle route from The Avenue to the city centre, creating a safer, more pleasant environment for cyclists
This scheme was completed on Tuesday 21 July 2020.
We will be installing a shared use cycleway/footway through College Place. The work will include resurfacing the footway and carriageway as well as installing signage, railings and bollards in places. The new shared cycleway will complete a section of the SCN5 cycle route linking Dorset Street to London Road, creating a safe route for cyclists from The Avenue to the city centre. Investing in cycling infrastructure will contribute to the Council’s Green City Charter by encouraging more people onto bicycles, resulting in better air quality to protect the environment.
