Kenilworth footbridge set for facelift

Leamington Editorial 17th Jun, 2022   0

A WELL-USED path across a footbridge in Kenilworth is set for a facelift.

The route between Clarke’s Avenue and Farmer Ward Road is to be improved by a jointly funded scheme by Warwickshire County Council (WCC) in partnership with Kenilworth Town Council.

Residents are being invited to share their views on the proposed improvements which will include the removal of barriers plus the widening and resurfacing of the path to create a shared route for walking and cycling.

Kenilworth town councillor for St John’s, Andrew Milton, said: “The town council is pleased to be able to support this scheme. I would like to encourage residents to have their say on our plans to improve the footbridge so that they can make the best use of it.”

WCC transport spokesman Coun Wallace Redford added: ‘The intention is to provide a more attractive and useable connection between east and west Kenilworth for people of all ages and abilities.

“We want residents in Kenilworth to be able to use a footbridge that is fit for purpose, well-connected, in good condition and is safe for users, so it’s really important to hear the views of those who use it. ”

More detailed information, including a scheme plan and feedback forms are available online – – or at Kenilworth Library. All comments need to be submitted by June 24.
