TMP 7196 - North-South City Centre Cycle Route, Nottingham
Nottingham City Council is looking to encourage the growth of new cycle users within the City,
thus giving a viable alternative to motor vehicles and encouraging a healthier lifestyle for all
citizens. As part of this vision it is proposed to expand the City’s cycle facilities by providing
contra-flow cycle lanes on parts of the carriageways of Friar Lane, Park Row and The Ropewalk,
allowing safe passage for city bound cyclists travelling from the north-west of the city centre.
These are quiet, low trafficked streets ideal for cycling. However, the current restrictions prohibit
cycling in the opposite direction of the one way, therefore compelling cyclists to travel on less
Furthermore, a minor reduction of the Pay & Display parking bays immediately to the south-east
of The Ropewalk/Oxford Street junction will be necessary to accommodate the proposed re-
construction works to that junction.

Before proceeding further with these proposals and in accordance with statutory procedures and
policies, I now wish to consider your views regarding this matter. Whilst it may not be possible to
agree to all your suggestions, they will be incorporated into the proposals whenever appropriate
and economically feasible.
