£2.021 million grant funding was secured from Government for an early measures programme focusing on the A4600 corridor running between the city centre and M6 Junction 2.
The main project measures delivered included:
- improvement of the traffic signals at Walsgrave Road / Clay Lane / Brays Lane junction at Ball Hill to reduce congestion.
- the introduction of new technology to improve traffic management along the corridor through integration of traffic signals, air quality monitoring and information systems.
- a scheme to encourage local taxi drivers to try out locally manufactured electric taxis on a trial basis with the aim of ultimately replacing diesel powered vehicles with cleaner vehicles.
- engagement with local schools, businesses and communities to promote active and sustainable travel for local journeys, taking car trips off the road.
