Mill Street Corridor is part of a package of projects being supported by the government’s Towns Fund and Crewe’s allocation of up to £22.9m of funding.

The project is led by the council and aims to deliver an improved route for pedestrians and cyclists travelling between Crewe town centre and the existing railway station and proposed HS2 hub, as well as to deliver new and improved outdoor spaces and local amenities along the route.

Ahead of a planning application for the scheme being submitted, the council is inviting people to attend one of two drop-in events at Crewe Market Hall.

The first event will take place on Thursday 16 February from 2-7pm, with a further event taking place on Friday 17 February from 11am-5pm.

The new pedestrian and cycling route is proposed to run along Nantwich Road, Pedley Street and Railway Street, and cut through Waverley Court and Wesley Place.

From there it would run north along Mill Street then Brook Street towards the town centre.

The route is planned to link up with other proposed schemes, including the Valley Brook green corridor which is also being supported by the Towns Fund and aims to connect Queens Park with Mill Street / Edleston Road via a cycling and walking route primarily through parks and open spaces.

The route would also link with the Southern Gateway Pedestrian and Cycling Connectivity Scheme – one of the projects being progressed following Cheshire East Council’s successful £14.1m bid to the government’s Future High Streets Fund.

It would create a new arrival point into the town, with a new pedestrian walkway and cycleway between High Street and the Lifestyle Centre.
