Binley Cycleway project next steps
The consultation for the second part of a proposed cycleway running along Binley Road and Clifford Bridge Road to the University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire in Walsgrave will start on 8 March.
Plans for Binley Cycleway would create a segregated cycleway along a 6km (3.75mile) route to the east of the city.
During the first phase consultation plans for a stretch of Binley Road, between Far Gosford Street and Brinklow Road, were outlined and hundreds of people responded to help shape plans going forward.
Now highways officers are outlining plans for the final section of the cycleway along Clifford Bridge Road to the University Hospital.
A consultation asking for feedback on the proposed section is now underway.
Coventry’s Bicycle Mayor, Adam Tranter, has appealed for people to sign the petition:
This ePetition can be signed by a person of any age who lives, works or studies in Coventry.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve had this route checked independently and it is of very high quality and – while we need many more – will position Coventry as having some of the best cycleways in the country.
Unfortunately, as seems to be the case with changes like this, it has attracted some dissenting voices. It’s very important that a noisy minority doesn’t drown out the people who would like to cycle if it felt safe and comfortable. Routes like the Binley Cycleway will help people do just this. This petition, set up by a local Binley resident who cycles, is a good way of showing that support.
I would really appreciate your support in signing and would be grateful if you could consider sharing with anyone who is likely to benefit from more high quality cycle lanes in the city.
