West Park Lighting

Walking & Cycling Network

Small Scale Project (£1m - £4m) 

This project aims to make pedestrian and cycleway improvements by extending the existing lighting to link up the northern entrance at Princess Street and King Street to the north-west entrance at the Robert Bakewell gates to National Cycle Route 6, and to cover the southern side of the park from the leisure centre entrance to the central play facilities (the south-west orbital) and from the central play facilities to the Broad Street Bridge (the south-east orbital). Improved lighting is anticipated to encourage more use of the park both as a walking and cycling destination and as a through route during twilight hours.
