Fleming Way improvements
Over the next three years we are leading over £100 million of investment in town centre projects to upgrade transport links, the public realm, heritage assets and catalyse the regeneration of a 20-acre site next to Zurich’s new offices.
This will help to stimulate further investment in the town centre by increasing land values and making it more attractive for investors to bring forward new homes, offices, shops and leisure facilities.
A key project will see the major upgrade and transformation of Fleming Way as the main gateway to the town centre. For both residents and visitors, it will improve connectivity between the train station and the town centre, creating a safer, easier to understand route through the town centre.
- Building a new bus interchange
- Vastly improving public open spaces
- Introducing new cycle lane facilities that link up the main cycling routes across the town
The Fleming Way subway will be removed to make the road the same level as the town centre shopping area and The Parade.
The project is due to be completed in autumn 2024.
