Last year, all members of the University community were invited to take part in the 2016 Travel Survey. We are now seeing the direct impact of your feedback, as improvements are planned to widen the path from the Friends Bridge to Meteorology.

The path on Whiteknights Campus is the location that most staff and students rated as suffering from overcrowding and pedestrian cyclists issues. These concerns are now being addressed!

What are the aims of the improvement?

  • To provide more space for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Ensure that cyclists and pedestrians can share the route safely

When will it take place?

Sustainability Services and Maintenance Services have arranged for these improvements to be made over the Easter break; the works at Meteorology are due to start Monday 27 March and are scheduled to be finished by Monday 24 April.

Look out for…

Further improvements to routes on Whiteknights Campus over the coming years – a draft for consultation should be available before the summer, so please share your views when this becomes available.
