Plans to improve cycleway through St Nicholas Park

A further important step to promote active travel in Warwick is being taken, with plans to improve the cycle and pedestrian route through St Nicholas Park.

The project which is being managed by Warwickshire County Council in consultation with Warwick District Council’s Green Spaces team will see the widening of the existing cycle route 41 which links the Myton Road to the Emscote Road.

Ahead of the scheme Warwick District Council has transferred small parcels of land in its ownership to the County Council, so that it can become part of the public highway.

Work is planned to start on Monday 4 April and is expected to be complete by the end of May. To help minimise disruption and inconvenience the works will be carried out in two phases:

Phase 1 – North section – Emscote Road to River Avon bridge.

Phase 2 – South section – River Avon bridge to Myton Road.

The improvements to this route have been funded by the Government’s ‘Getting Building Fund’ through the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP).
