Rugby Road cycle route, Binley Woods


We are developing a new cycle route on the A428 Rugby Road in Binley Woods to help people cycle safely for everyday journeys in and around the local area.

The proposed scheme is part of our programme of new cycle routes to enable more people to cycle for short local journeys, helping to tackle congestion, improve air quality, reduce carbon emissions, and support physical activity.

It is anticipated the scheme will be built in 2024. The new route will help improve connections between Binley Woods and Coventry.

Scheme description

The existing footway falls below current guidelines for the provision of a shared footway/cycle track and does not provide good access for disabled users or parents/guardians with pushchairs.

The proposed scheme will largely involve the widening of the existing footway into a shared footway/cycle track along Rugby Road between A46/A428 junction and Oakdale Road. The proposed section is approximately 250m in length and 2.5-3.0m wide. This will be achieved by removing obstructions currently within the highway boundary and relocation of street furniture. It may also involve the removal of small areas of vegetation.

We are also proposing a road hump across the access to Greens Home & Garden.

Consultation on these measures (road hump and shared use footway/ cycle track) is taking place between 3 and 28 May 2024. Please see details below.

Other projects

The Binley Woods connections are part of a wider programme to improve and extend the networks of walking and cycling routes in and around Warwickshire’s towns. The aim is to create a safe and attractive environment for walking, wheeling and cycling, so that they become the natural choices for shorter journeys and outdoor recreation in Warwickshire. Detailed proposals and scheme priorities are set out in the Warwickshire Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan.

Making it easier for people to walk and cycle for short local journeys will also help to tackle congestion, improve air quality, reduce carbon emissions, and support an increase in physical activity.
