Wilmslow proposed walking and cycling route

Cheshire East Council are planning to introduce an improved walking and cycle route in Wilmslow that also connects to Alderley Park. This will help improve access to the town centre, rail station, employment and education sites for pedestrians and cyclist, and provide opportunities for healthy living through physical activity.

What is happening

Wilmslow Walking and Cycling Plan600x245

The 2.1km route fills gaps in the cycleway network for the town and connects Wilmslow rail station to Alderley Park via the leisure centre and Broadway past Wilmslow High School and the Royal London Campus.

The proposed route would be constructed on the highway verge separated from motorised traffic and sections of quiet residential streets for the pedestrian and cycle facilities.

It reflects the Wilmslow Neighbourhood Plan requirement of ensuring that future cycling schemes should be designed to avoid a ‘hard’ edge of cycling provision at the edge of Wilmslow Parish boundary and ensure that they effectively integrate with other infrastructure.
