Parts of Stratford Greenway closed for resurfacing

Stratford Editorial 8th May, 2024   0

RESURFACING works have begun on Stratford Greenway.

The essential works will see access to the path – popular with cyclists, runners and walkers – closed or limited over the next few weeks.

Until Friday (May 10) access to the Greenway will be limited from Seven Meadows to Stannals Bridge.

During this time the whole section from Stannals Bridge down to and including Milcote Road Car Park will be closed while surfacing works take place and members of the public are asked to not use the surface so it can set effectively. Bobby’s café remains open and will still be accessible.

Milcote Car Park and Milcote Café will also be closed during this time in line with an expected drop in visitors.

Then from Monday May 13 until Wednesday May 15, the Greenway from Seven Meadows to Stannals Bridge will be closed.

Members of the public are asked to stay away from this area and not use the footpath so it can set effectively. Bobby’s café will be closed during this period and will reopen on Thursday May 16.

The section between Stannals Bridge and the sewage works will be completely inaccessible to the public throughout this period and will be subject to a public footpath closure notice.

Parking will still be available at Seven Meadows throughout the resurfacing works, although may be limited at times while the work is underway.

Warwickshire County Council’s environment spokesperson Coun Heather Timms said: “The Stratford Greenway is a much-loved route for walkers, cyclists, and families enjoying the outdoors, and it is essential it’s maintained to a high standard so that everyone can continue to enjoy it safely. We appreciate the patience of our regular visitors while these necessary resurfacing works are carried out, and we ask everyone to respect the closure signs in place.”
