The K2L Route
The K2L route is included in the transport proposals for the A452 corridor as part of the Warwick District local plan. The route follows the west side (right side) of the A452 from Kenilworth to The Chesford crossroads, then changes to the east side (left side) for the remainder of its route into Leamington.
We want this route to be as efficient and safe as possible, so any suggestions will be welcomed further along the process, once we are engaging in meaningful conversations with Warwickshire County Council.
Kenilworth Jet Garage Roundabout to Thickthorn Roundabout
Start at the Farmer Ward Road/Birches Lane junction. Includes a new Toucan crossing near Bullimore Grove entrance (good news for bus users and pedestrians, as well as cyclists).
Thickthorn (A46/A452) Roundabout
Major improvements to cycle facilities (e.g. traffic signals) can only be carried out in conjunction with other major developments here (e.g. Thickthorn housing), so deferred.
Thickthorn Roundabout to Bericote Roundabout
New bridge over the Avon and crossing the flood embankment with a series of small bridges.
Bericote Roundabout to Sandy Lane
An important 900m section of off-road cycleway avoiding the narrowest stretch of the A452.
Sandy Lane to Blackdown Roundabout
Blackdown Roundabout to Cloister Crofts junction
Includes upgrading the signalised crossing beyond Cloister Crofts to a Toucan (designed for both pedestrians and cyclists) crossing.
