A scheme to link Nuneaton to Coventry via Bedworth via approximately 4km of cycling infrastructure is in the pipeline. Described by Warwickshire County Council as providing “safe and attractive cycling access to major employment sites, supporting planned housing growth and enabling access to cultural and sporting events including 2021 Coventry UK City of Culture and 2022 Commonwealth Games activities, by non-car modes” (source), this would form an important link between these nearby urban locations where currently cycling is limited to only the most confident on the roads.
This page will serve to record a timeline of the development of this scheme, should it progress.
