Our Derwent riverside is a superb natural asset for the whole of our city and the Derwent Valley Heritage Site. Ensuring that it effectively links key destinations and employment areas will make cycling and walking more attractive for both commuting and leisure.
Derby Riverside Connections is a whole package of improvements and additions to the City’s current riverside paths and cycleways, with different elements being delivered through various other local projects. It provides the catalyst for a new programme of interventions connecting the riverside with key destinations. By improving access to key business and employment zones, it will enable local businesses to target new customers and to promote sustainable travel more effectively to their employees.
It aims to create a riverside route that is more accessible, safer and more attractive to the pedestrians and cyclists who will use it. It’s also looking to the future by creating exciting new interactive spaces using modern technology.
