Access between Worcester City centre and the Tolladine & Newtown Roads is horrible and unsafe for pedestrians and cyclists. People who live in the Tolladine, or Newtown/Ronkswood areas face serious restrictions in getting to the city centre for work, shopping, or leisure. The route along bridge Lowesmoor Place & Tolladine Road is busy with road traffic and has a footpath on one side only, which is narrow, particularly where it passes under the railway tracks, and makes it difficult and dangerous for pedestrians to pass each other. It’s even more hazardous if either party is accompanied by small children, or a pushchair, or is a disability scooter user. The route via Newtown Road is similarly blighted. Residents of these areas are subject to unfair and unreasonable limits on the right to work, shop, and enjoy their leisure in the city.
