Work has been underway in the streets of Coventry since November 2013 in the hopes of making Coventry a more accessible, controlled and safer place. The council hopes that the new improvements will set the bars for development in the area hoping the standard for future investment into the city will increase.

Though the project seems to be running well, it is causing severe delays on the road for drives. Due to this, Earl Street, Jordan Well and Much Park Street are closed off which may last up to 8 weeks to facilitate the works.

Businesses need not to worry, as all shops are open and deliveries will be accommodated where possible. For safety reasons, pedestrian’s access will be maintained at all times.

The work is being used to create:

  • wider pedestrian areas using high quality sandstone paving
  • new grassed areas and shrubbery extending up to and around the Council House
  • a one way system along Little Park Street and Earl Street
  • two new zebra crossing’s near High Street and The Herbert Art Gallery

So far details include new kerb lines which have been implemented on St. Johns Street, and Little Park Street.

The road works are taking place over the next few weeks, aimed to be finished by spring 2014.
The council thanks the publics patience.
