These works will include the following measures: 

  • Introduction of shared pedestrians/cycle route.
  • Directing cyclists to use the carriageway as part of the route.
  • Widening the existing refuge island at the junction of Sevenoaks Road and Willingdon Drove.
  • Some sections of the route will require widening the existing footway.
  • Some sections of the route will require carriageway works in order to facilitate the cycle route.
  • Relocation of the existing crash barrier to the back of the footway on the corner of Willingdon Drove and Sevenoaks Road.
  • Installation of new street lighting columns and upgrading the existing lanterns.
  • Installation of new road markings and pedestrian/cycling road signs.
  • Please note that as part of this cycle scheme, there are currently no plans to remove any on street parking.
