Council clarified plans on transforming Nuneaton road works

WARWICKSHIRE County council has clarified its position on transforming Nuneaton road works.

The planned development on Wheat Street is to reduce congestion as well as improve traffic flows in the town centre.

The work is in support of the Transforming Nuneaton Programme.

The funding has been secured from developer infrastructure contributions which enable traffic to move out of the centre and towards the roundabout which is due to be built on Leicester Road.

Toucan crossings and a segregated route will also improve facilities for all road users and connectivity with the railway station.

The council said there are no current plans to remove the dandelion fountain on Corporation Street.




Coun Jan Matecki, portfolio holder for transport and planning, said: “I’m delighted that the Wheat Street scheme looks set to be continued, this is integral in getting traffic away from the town centre and supporting pedestrian and cycling access.

“Transforming Nuneaton is about a bright and positive future for the town centre, and this scheme will play an important part in making this happen.”
