Kenilworth Active Travel projects - Clarke's Avenue to Farmer Ward Road


We are proposing to improve the path between Clarke’s Avenue and Farmer Ward Road in Kenilworth, including widening and resurfacing. This will enable us to create a shared use route for walking and cycling, providing a more attractive connection between east and west Kenilworth for people of all ages and abilities.

The proposed scheme is part of a wider programme of ‘Active Travel’ projects to make it easier for people to walk and cycle for short local journeys, helping to tackle congestion, improve air quality, reduce carbon emissions and support physical activity.

Funding for the design and development of this scheme has come from Warwickshire County Council and Kenilworth Town Council.

In order to create the shared use route, we propose to grant permissive rights to cyclists to use the path. Please see the notice below.

Scheme description

The scheme includes the following proposed measures:

  • Path widening (to three metres) and resurfacing 
  • Permitting cycling on the path
  • Removal of existing barriers and replacement with wooden bollards
  • Dropped kerbs at Clarke’s Avenue and Farmer Ward Road
  • Information and direction signs for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Cleaning and painting of bridge metalwork

You can view further details of the scheme on the plan below.
