The next phase of work in our future campus vision is to develop our plans under four overarching campus development themes:
Transport and Mobility
We aim to transform the travel and arrival experience for staff, students, visitors and local communities by enhancing mobility to and across campus.
What might this look like?
- Support the development and implementation of new connectivity routes with broader local and regional benefit – the A46 link road, a new University station, Very Light Rail.
- Reduce the dependency on single occupancy vehicle usage by introducing more sustainable modes of travel to campus, flexible working, ride share and demand responsive transport options
- Welcome hubs at the periphery of campus to improve the arrival experience and reduce on-campus congestion.
- Easier to navigate pedestrian and cycle routes to, from and around campus.
What do we have to build on?
- Our Hybrid planning application approved in 2019 includes improved transport connectivity between local stations, particularly Tile Hill, improved pedestrian routes and the extension of cycle routes beyond campus boundaries, traffic calming measures and new road crossings.
- Our car parking strategy is already relocating car parks to periphery locations, and increasing signage on availability.
- WMG is leading on international autonomous vehicle developments at their test bed site on campus and Very Light Rail developments with local partners in the West Midlands.
