The vision for the city recognised that the new developments will only fully integrate into the city centre through improvements to the city's pedestrianised areas.
In the last three years the following areas have been improved:
Bull Ring and the Springs
- Phase 1 of work covered the Bull Ring, The Springs North and Teall Street.
- Phase 2 covered Brook Street, Westmorland Street and The Springs South.
- Phase 3 Lower Springs
Work completed included the creation of:
- a central water feature
- wider pavements
- improved seating
- a range of new lighting features.
Work to extend the Bull Ring, down Westmorland Street to the junction with Teall Street was completed in May 2014. Completion of work has seen the reduction of cars throughout the area with pedestrian priority crossing points introduced, helping to create a safer, more attractive, city centre environment.
The final phase of this programme of improvement is under Construction and expected to be completed in November 2013.
A public exhibition was held in January 2013 that provided details of the scheme and invited comments and ideas from residents, local, property and land owners and members of the public.
The design was based on the same materials used on the Upper Springs, Teall Street and Brook Street. Two small areas of soft landscaping will be created to bring some greenery into the city centre.
