Work starts on new cycle and pedestrian path in Wilford


Work will begin on Monday 16 September to create a shared cycle and pedestrian path along Clifton Lane better connecting Clifton with routes towards the city centre.

The pavement on the northern side of the road will be widened and resurfaced to accommodate a new shared cycle and footpath. Improvements will be made to the side road and access road entrances and green surfacing laid to show cycle and pedestrian priority.

Work will start on Monday 16 September and should be completed in four weeks. Work on the shared path should have little impact on traffic, although sections may be closed to pedestrians while works take place. At times this will mean a lane of traffic will need to be closed, to provide space for pedestrians to pass the works. This will be done as required, but not during morning or afternoon peak traffic.
Bus stops will remain unaffected throughout the works.

Councillor Adele Williams, Nottingham City Council’s portfolio holder for Transport, said: “This path is one of the first improvement projects we’ve been able to make as part of the Department for Transport’s Transforming Cities fund, which aims to help support active and sustainable travel as well as connecting communities to employment sites.

“The improved path will help to better connect cyclists and pedestrians along Clifton Lane through to the quiet route up Main Road towards the Toll Bridge and routes into the city centre.”
