Top half of Stratford Greenway to close for resurfacing

Leamington Editorial 20th Mar, 2024   0

THE TOP half of Stratford Greenway is closing for resurfacing works.

The track will be closed in phases in April and May for the essential resurfacing works to take place.

Time frames are dependent on weather conditions that would impact the quality of the surface finish however the work is expected to be completed by contractors Arden in two phases.

The first phase is due to take place from April 8 to April 26, during which time the Greenway will be closed from Milcote Car Park to roughly adjacent with the sewage works during working hours (7.30am to 4.30pm on weekdays) for works surface preparation. This section will then be closed all day and night from May 1 to May 3 for surface treatment with tar and chippings.




The second phase is due to take place from April 29 to May 17, during which time the Greenway will be closed from the Seven Meadows car park to just after Stannals Bridge during working hours.

The section between Stannals Bridge and the sewage works will be completely inaccessible to the public throughout this period due to a public footpath closure notice.


Surface treatment on this section will then take place from May 21 to May 23, during which time the Greenway will be closed all day and night between Seven Meadows car park and adjacent to the sewage works.

Parking will still be available at Seven Meadows throughout the resurfacing works. Parking at Milcote Car Park will be limited during phase one.

Warwickshire County Council’s environment spokesperson Coun Heather Timms said: “The Stratford Greenway is a much-loved route for walkers, cyclists, and families enjoying the outdoors, and it’s essential it’s maintained to a high standard so that everyone can continue to enjoy it safely. We appreciate the patience of our regular visitors while these necessary resurfacing works are carried out, and we ask everyone to respect the closure signs in place.”
