Following our work to improve a number of areas across the city centre - creating wider pavements and narrower roads and reducing vehicle speeds - we are preparing to make improvements to Hales Street between the Britannia Hotel and the Whittle Arch to create a better environment for pedestrians while maintaining vehicle and cycle access.
We will be widening pavements and planting new trees and we will use an Experimental Traffic Order which allows loading between 8am and 11am which then changes to short term parking of 15 minutes between 11am and 6pm with no return within 1 hour.
The work will take about 10 weeks to complete and pedestrian and vehicle access will be available at all times.
The two taxi bays will be closed during the work with taxis relocating to the existing rank on Priory Street. The bays will be reopened on completion of the work.
This project is being funded by the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) through an award as part of the Government’s Growth Deal initiative.
