We're upgrading the two pedestrian crossings located at the Church Road North entrance of Ruffey Lake Park.
The existing pedestrian crossings will be replaced with two raised 'wombat' pedestrian crossings to enhance safety and accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists.
The construction works will begin mid-February and will take around one month to complete.
During this time, the Church Road North entry will be closed to vehicles except for local residents. However, alternative parking is available along Cricklewood Drive. Pedestrians will be able to access the area via a detour, and we kindly ask them to follow the directions of signs and staff.
This project is part of the Ruffey Lake Masterplan and is funded by our 2023/24 Capital Works Program.
Following the recent footpath construction on Church Road North, this upgrade will complete the pedestrian circuit from King Street through the park.
We thank you for your ongoing support and patience while we work to improve this open space.
