Work on a segregated cycle route between the city centre and Coundon would never have started if Coventry had been forced by the government to accept a charging clean air zone, according to city councillors.
It’s national Clean Air Day in the UK on 8 October and Coventry City Council is asking for feedback on its latest scheme to improve air quality in the city.
Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) has unveiled the Starley Network, a new 500-mile cycling vision for the West Midlands.
A new high quality, segregated cycleway from Coundon to the city centre is being created to help support cycling as a viable alternative to the car and to help improve air quality within the city.
A new secure cycle hub has been officially opened by the university and Councillor Patricia Hetherton, Cabinet Member for City Services.
£5m funding has been secured to help deliver a new cycle route, connecting the city centre with a busy business park in Coventry.
