Opening the gated roads in Bermuda
The proposed route Bermuda Road – Harefield Lane – Mimosa Close – Walsingham Drive enabled through opening the gated roads would involve sections of new highway running through a wider mass of residential properties. This incurs a risk of introducing a higher level of noise and disturbance to local residents.
Notwithstanding, opening the Gated Roads has not been considered as the existing gates off Hazell Way and Harefield Lane are on private land, and the link would be entirely situated on private land and would not involve the use of public highway maintained by the council. Therefore, further consideration and delivery would need to be led by a third party, such as a Developer.
However, Getting West Nuneaton Moving: Bermuda Connection involves an:
- existing highway owned by the council, such as Bermuda Bridge
- existing highway already in the process of being transferred to the County Council, such as The Bridleway
- existing private highway transferable to the council, for example, the embankments and approaches either side of the bridge.
