Residents are running out of time to have their say on plans to convert a footbridge into a joint cycling and walking route.

Warwickshire County Council and Kenilworth Town Council are asking for feedback on the proposed scheme for the bridge between Clarke's Avenue and Farmer Ward Road.

The town council approved a £27,500 budget for the project in February - with its county colleagues also set to provide funding.

Improvements could see the kerbs dropped, barriers removed and the path widened and resurfaced and new markings added.

The plans are part of the town council's vision to create a safe cycling route across the town.

This was further boosted by a £100,000 county-led cycling project for Coventry Road that was confirmed earlier this month.

Town and district councillor Cllr Andrew Milton, said: "The town council is pleased to be able to support this scheme with funding from the Community Infrastructure Levy.

"I would like to encourage residents to have their say on our plans to improve the footbridge so that they can make the best use of it." 

Residents can view the plans online here.

Submissions must be made by June 24.

The plans can also be viewed at Kenilworth Library.
