The City Council has unveiled plans for an eye-catching trail of light which will guide people between Coventry’s railway station and the city centre. It is set to be installed before this Christmas.
The illuminated route will run through Greyfriars Green and up Warwick Row to create a warm and inviting setting at night.
A number of themed variations to the lighting scheme are planned to coincide with events such as Christmas, Pride and the City of Culture celebrations.
The project is part of a £44 million package of public realm improvements being implemented in the city centre in the run up to City of Culture. Other lighting schemes will show off some of the city’s cultural and heritage assets, including the canopy at Hertford Street and the Whittle Arches.
Other Public Realm projects include environmental schemes in the Upper Precinct, Smithford Way and Market Way, publich realm works in Bull Yard and outside the new Wave, the refurbishment of Hertford Street and the upgrading of walking routes across the city centre. A major refurbishment of Pool Meadow is also planned.
