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.

Leicester is proud to welcome rugby fans from across the world for Rugby World Cup 2015 (RWC 2015). As well as the sporting action, there will be a cultural festival open to all to get into the spirit of the games. Visitors can also take time out away from the sport to discover Leicester’s historic centre.
The tournament kicks off on September 18 2015 with the opening ceremony and match at the home of English rugby - Twickenham.
Rail customers on East Midlands Trains, Britain’s most punctual long-distance train operator, will benefit from around £13m of investment under a new agreement between Stagecoach Group and the Department for Transport (DfT) which will see a new franchise starting in October, to run until at least March 2018.
