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 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.
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.
