'INTRODUCING THE WESTERN CYCLE CORRIDOR'
City - Castle Boulevard - Abbey Street - Dunkirk - University Boulevard - Woodside Road
 

Nottingham City Council is investing in and working up plans to improve and expand the city's cycling facilities in order to provide a joined-up network of cycle corridors throughout the city.

A consultation on proposals for a two-way segregated route to run alongside the carriage way -  Western Cycle Corridor - has begun. For more information about the proposals follow the links in:

http://www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/buildingnottingham

The route proposed for this cycle superhigh way is the city, Castle Boulevard, Abbey Street, Dunkirk, University Boulevard and Woodside Road, Lenton Abbey.

The proposals include:

  • New side road entry treatments to give priority to cyclists and pedestrians;
  • Redesigning the Abbey Street roundabout to a single gyratory;
  • Closure of the Grove Road/Castle Boulevard junction  to motor vehicles and a no-entry at Harley Sgtreeet from the Abbey Bridge roundabout;
  • Upgrading of most traffic signals located along the route
The route will maximise space for and give priority to cyclists and pedestrians. Two options are being drawn up: one with greater segregation and one with areas of shared space. Both are scheduled to be discussed with councillors and the community as part of the consultation process.
