What's happening?

Works will take place on Western Boulevard to improve access to parking and create a better path for pedestrians and cyclists. The path between Reydon Drive and St Leodegarius Church will be widened, and additional hard standing areas will be created to improve vehicle access and protect the grass.

Before Christmas works will involve widening the path, with drop kerb construction and path resurfacing taking place in the New Year.

Works include

  • Widening and  resurfacing the path to create a shared cycle and pedestrian path
  • Bollards to keep cars driving down the cycle/foot path to a minimum
  • Improving vehicle access points, and creating new ones for residents
  • Creating new hard standing areas to protect the verge from vehicles

How will this affect traffic?

  • Work will be carried out  between 7am and 4pm Monday – Saturday
  • The existing pathway will remain open although with reduced width. Please be cautious and considerate
  • There will be occasional off peak lane closures along Western Boulevard (between 9:30am – 3:30pm)
  • Bus stops will remain in use however temporary stops may be needed
