A428 Rugby Road, Binley Woods

Closes 28 May 2024

Opened 3 May 2024

Overview

Rugby Road cycle route, Binley Woods

Background

We are developing a new cycle route on the A428 Rugby Road in Binley Woods to help people cycle safely for everyday journeys in and around the local area.

The proposed scheme is part of our programme of new cycle routes to enable more people to cycle for short local journeys, helping to tackle congestion, improve air quality, reduce carbon emissions, and support physical activity.

It is anticipated the scheme will be built in 2024. The new route will help improve connections between Binley Woods and Coventry. A 'Frequently asked questions' document for this scheme has been provided at the bottom of this webpage. Click here for more information on cycling in Coventry.

Scheme description

The existing footway falls below current guidelines for the provision of a shared footway/cycle track and does not provide good access for disabled users or parents/guardians with pushchairs.

The proposed scheme will largely involve the widening of the existing footway into a shared footway/cycle track along Rugby Road between A46/A428 junction and Oakdale Road. The proposed section is approximately 250m in length and 2.5-3.0m wide.  This will be achieved by reclaiming land within the highway boundary and relocation of street furniture. It may also involve the removal of small areas of grass verges and some vegetation.

We are also proposing a road hump across the access to Greens Home & Garden.
