A milestone has been reached on the Western Flyer, the cycleway and footpath linking West Swindon with the town centre.
Work on a ‘gateway’ under Mead Way from Westlea was completed in December. This latest phase of works funded by the Swindon Travel Choices project has created an attractive and more user-friendly layout.
Bespoke plinth signs, branded with the Western Flyer logo, provide a route map and information about the sights to be seen on the way into town. It describes Swindon’s rich transport heritage, the River Ray and some of the well-known landmarks.
Other enhancements include the realignment of the kerbs on the approaches to the subway to enable a wider route.
This is complemented by new surfacing and a lighting scheme on both sides of the entrance, and within the underpass.
