PEOPLE are being given the chance to comment on proposals to improve footpaths and introduce a new cycleway on two busy Leicester city centre streets.
The city council plans to create better footpaths and a separate cycle lane along a stretch of Welford Road, from Newarke Street to Lancaster Walk.
The new two-way cycle lane will replace the existing bus lane on Welford Road, keeping the existing three lanes open to general traffic. Pavements will also be improved to create a more attractive environment for pedestrians.
Current proposals include the creation of a bus only link at the junction of Welford Road and Infirmary Road, a new crossing at the junction of Mill Street and Welford Road, and a review of existing kerbside parking arrangements. Some bus stops could also be relocated.
