Upper Gardens cycle and walking improvements

Work on improving walking and cycling through Upper Gardens is now largely complete. Improvements include:

  • widening and resurfacing the existing cycle/footpath through the gardens from the Square, along the south-west side of Upper Gardens to the entrance on Prince of Wales Road
  • better night-time lighting to improve security
  • improved wayfinding and signage
  • widening of the existing footway on the eastern side of Prince of Wales Road and Queens Road, creating shared space for pedestrians and cyclists
  • new crossing on Branksome Wood Road near the junction with Queens Road.
