Have your say on A6005 cycle corridor proposals
Views are being sought on proposed upgrades to the cycle corridor which links Beeston and Chilwell. The A6005 cycle corridor was discussed by councillors at the 9 February meeting of the Transport and Environment Committee.
The proposed upgrades are one part of a long-term aim to extend commutable distances by bike between Derby and Nottingham and are specifically focused on local connections between Beeston town centre, Beeston Train Station, the University of Nottingham, Chilwell School, the proposed development at Chilwell Barracks, Attenborough Train Station, as well as Chilwell Retail Park and Attenborough Nature Reserve.
Plans for the upgrades include a mixture of signed routes using quiet residential roads, shared use footways and high-quality segregated cycle tracks.
The consultation is now open until 31 May 2022 and is being funded with part of the money awarded to Nottingham City Council through the Government’s Transforming Cities Fund.

Councillor Neil Clarke MBE, Chairman of the Transport and Environment Committee, said:
“We’re consulting on the proposed A6005 cycle corridor upgrade scheme in Broxtowe. The consultation is open until 31 May 2022 and is being funded with part of the money awarded to Nottingham City Council through the Government’s Transforming Cities Fund. We’re very keen to hear the views of local people who live, work and travel in that area.”
“The A6005 scheme, located in Beeston and Chilwell, would see the delivery of a 4.3km cycle corridor from Lower Road onto Queens Road West and up to Ranson Road.
“We’re keen to work with the City Council and once we have consulted on the proposals, we will be working together to share our information.
“I would encourage all residents in the area and others who use the road to have their say and I look forward to receiving the feedback from this consultation.”
The consultation is open from Tuesday 3 May until Tuesday 31 May, and responses can be submitted through the council’s website: https://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/transport/transforming-cities-fund
