A429 Coventry Road cycling scheme, Warwick

Background

We are developing a new cycle route on the A429 Coventry Road. This will provide a continuous and safe off road cycle route between the Spinney Hill roundabout (where it will connect to the existing National Cycle Network Route 52 from Kenilworth) and the St John’s area on the outskirts of Warwick town centre.

The proposed scheme is part of our programme of new cycle route developments to make it easier for people to cycle for short local journeys, helping to tackle congestion, improve air quality, reduce carbon emissions, and support an increase in physical activity.

This scheme is part of a package of new cycling schemes being developed with funding from the County Council and the Getting Building Fund through the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

Scheme description

The proposed scheme will construct a new footway/cycleway adjacent to A429 Coventry Road, from the Spinney Hill roundabout and extending the existing infrastructure that will provide onward cycling connection opportunities to Warwick town centre, Myton School, Warwick Technology Park, and destinations to the south of Warwick via St Nicholas’s park and towards Leamington Spa via the proposed Emscote Road Sustainable Travel Corridor. This scheme will also have link into future Warwick town centre improvements.

The route itself will involve:

  • Widening of the footway on the western side of Coventry Road.
  • Conversion of footway to shared footway/cycleway
  • A section of fully segregated cycling infrastructure separating cyclists from pedestrians and motor vehicles.
  • A parallel crossing being installed.
  • Upgrading an existing informal path to provide 300m of shared use route that is fully segregated from traffic, between Spinney Hill roundabout and the Grand Union Canal.
