Developer

Coventry City Council

Description

The layout of this strategically positioned junction on the main arterial route from the railway station to Broadgate currently hinders the free flow of pedestrians by blocking direct access in and out of Broadgate. This project will improve connectivity and create a more attractive entrance into the heart of the city centre by removing 28 Broadgate/80 Hertford Street and creating a single wide direct pedestrian walkway. The demolition of these properties will expose the historic bridge link and restore Broadgate House to its original state. The public realm improvements will add the finishing touch to make the setting and the general area more attractive.
