Views sought on transport corridor to help relieve congestion on the A46

RESIDENTS are being asked for their views on a new transport corridor which could help relieve congestion on the A46.

Warwickshire County Council is calling on residents, businesses and those with an interest in the south Coventry area to look at plans for the corridor between the A46 Stoneleigh Junction, the University of Warwick and Westwood Heath.

The council says the corridor would improve access to University of the Warwick and existing business parks, while linking to new and existing housing and employment, with the aim of reducing congestion on the A45 and A46.

Plans are still in the early stages, with indicative scheme proposals identified.




A consultation is taking place on three main options, with feedback helping to steer the project.

Transport spokesman Jeff Clarke said: “The A46 Strategic Link Road Scheme is an exciting project that will bring tangible economic benefits to the county and the wider sub-region. In addition to this, it will also relieve congestion on smaller highways leading to the University of Warwick and Westwood Heath.


“I would urge as many residents as possible get involved in this consultation exercise to ensure their voices are heard and that Our communities continue to be supported by the excellent transport infrastructure that they deserve.”
