Pocket Places project is a part of a wider Queensway-London Road scheme which includes proposals to improve the roundabout at Queensway and London Road and changes along both sides of London Road as far as Avenue Road/North Road.
As a part of the scheme, some extra planting, benches and cycle parking will be added along London Road, as well as widening the pavement in some of the narrower areas between the roundabout and Avenue Road/North Road to create a better public realm and a friendlier space. A shared cycle and pedestrian route along the north side of London Road links with the one along Queensway and completes a “cycle ring” around the Town Centre, linking to the seafront, Victoria Avenue and Prittle Brook Greenway.
