This part of the neighbourhood plan involves making improvements to several paths and roads around Nuns Moor and Arthur’s Hill, including Fenham Hall Drive, Nuns Moor itself, Dilson Road and Gainsborough Grove. The objective of this is to make it safer and easier to cycle and walk around these areas.

Westgate Road and Bishops Avenue

What’s the idea? To improve the environment of the existing closure at this location. The package of measures to improve this includes:

  • Introduce flush dropped kerb and parking restriction on Westgate Road to enable cycle access.
  • Remove concrete bollards and rearrange and add metal bollards, paint existing black.
  • Permit cycling in existing closure.
  • Introduce flush dropped kerb and parking restriction onto Hartington Street.

What are the benefits? Improve the existing condition to allow greater connection and access as a through route to cyclists.

Westgate Road, Dilston Road and Stanhope Street end

What’s the idea? To improve the environment of the existing closure at this location. The package of measures to do this includes:

  • Introduce flush dropped kerb and parking restriction on Westgate Road to enable cycle access.
  • Permit cycling in existing closure.
  • Introduce flush dropped kerb and parking restriction onto Dilston Road.
  • Remove Guard rail and replace with bollards and introduce a dropped kerb at both sides of Stanhope Street end of Dilston Road.
  • Change Zebra crossing to a parallel crossing by relocating the zebra beacon and add road markings between the ends of Dilston Road where Crossley Terrace meets Stanhope Street.

What are the benefits? Improve the existing condition to allow greater connection and access as a through route to cyclists. Improve the capacity and alignment with a parallel crossing.

Brighton Grove and Fenham Road

What’s the idea? This location has a high volume of traffic, the idea is to provide a safer crossing point for pedestrians and cyclist across Brighton Grove and improve cycle access onto Fenham Road across Brighton grove. The package of measures to improve this includes:

  • Remove the existing refuge and replace with a parallel crossing.
  • Build out the footway to improve visibility between people crossing and driving.
  • Introduce dropped kerbs and parking restrictions at the end of Fenham Road on both sides.

What are the benefits? Improved facilities and conditions for pedestrians and cyclists at this busy part of Brighton Grove.

Crossley Terrace / end of Gainsborough Grove to Studley Terrace

What’s the idea? To create a cycle friendly route to make this a high quality local network, by improving access for all people cycling and walking through the existing road closures, develop car parking relocation and safe parking and crossing access to Nuns Moor Park. The package of measures to improve this includes:

  • Starting at the location near Studley terrace – Introduce flush dropped kerb and parking restriction to enable cycle access.
  • Designate space for shared use.
  • Introduce flush dropped kerb and parking restriction to enable cycle access.
  • Introduce an asphalt path through “grasscrete” area.
  • Further along remove the guard rail and wall.
  • Introduce at the other end of the “grasscrete” area flush dropped kerb and parking restriction.
  • New cycle zebra (parallel crossing) to provide safe access to and from park

What are the benefits? Improved facilities and conditions for pedestrians and cyclists away from high volumes of traffic.

Fenham Hall Drive and Wingrove Road North / A167

What’s the idea? Fenham Hall Drive to Wingrove  Road is one of the main east to west routes in the project area that suffer from high traffic volumes and speeds. The package of measures to improve this includes:

  • To improve this route for pedestrians and cyclists by widening the existing cycle lane and provide light segregation in the form of ‘wand orcas’, at selected locations provide a shared use path so cyclists avoid main carriage way along parking bay.
  • Relocation of bus stops, realigned crossings and the introduction of a toucan crossing outside the park entrance. Provide bus stop boarder so that cyclists avoid having to negotiate around alighting busses.
  • The A167 is another busy road that you can go through the underpass to access the Town Moor, the measures to improve this are to designate the footway between the the town moor and underpass as shared use.
  • Introduce dropped flush kerb and parking restrictions to create a clear route.

What are the benefits? Realigned crossings making access to paths easier and more direct, create a safer cycling route and crossing points for cyclists and pedestrians on this busy road.

Brighton Grove, between Studley Terrace and Barrack Road

What’s the idea? This location has a high volume of traffic with existing cycling infrastructure that needs upgrading. The package of measures to improve this includes:

  • Remove the centre line from the road to reduce traffic speed.
  • Introduce parking restrictions.
  • Widen the cycle lane, and introduce light segregation features.

What are the benefits? Improvement to the safety and condition of the existing cycling route.
