Connect2Kenilworth combined cycleway and footbridge

This new single span bridge provides a link over the A429 Coventry Road for users of The Greenway, and is part of the wider Connect2Kenilworth project, which in turn is part of a national project which aims to  ‘enable millions of people to make everyday, local journeys by foot or bike’.

Following an extensive public consultation on three designs produced by Design Services, the public voted for the bridge shown below.

The County Council commissioned Curral Lewis & Martin Ltd to construct the bridge.  Close working with all parties ensured the bridge was completed 4 weeks early and £30,000 under budget.

The bridge was lifted into place on the 10th September 2011 during an overnight road closure, watched by a large crowed of local residents.
