Current Coventry City Centre improvement projects
On the back of the success of previous projects, a programme of further city centre improvements is planned for 2013/14. The Council is investing £2.8m in the enhancements, and are bidding for further funding from the European Regional Development Fund.
Under the second phase, plans include improving pedestrian links into the city centre from Jordan Well to High Street to create an attractive boulevard into the city centre. There will also be junction improvements at Little Park Street and Council House Square to further improve safety and accessibility for pedestrians as well as reduce congestion. A programme of wider de-cluttering will be undertaken to improve the settings to our historic buildings. The enhancements will massively improve links to the city’s major tourist attractions – the Cathedral and Transport Museum – and will create a more attractive city centre environment to encourage investment and stimulate growth.
