Improvements are being made to the cycle route that links Ifield Station with Metcalf Way in Manor Royal. Crawley Borough Council, Manor Royal BID and Basepoint Business Centre are working together to fund and implement improvements to the cycle route.
The project will include the installation of new street lighting columns and improved street signage along the cycle route between Manor Royal and Ifield Station and the resurfacing of the stretch of path that links Langley Walk and Metcalf Way.
The street lighting has been specifically designed to light the cycle path without disturbing nearby properties. It will use micro luma lanterns, which are designed to ensure that light is directed down towards the cycle path, further reducing environmental impact. The lights will also make use of energy saving technology that will dim the lights between midnight and dawn.
The council has appointed two contractors to undertake the work. Colas will install the lights and Edburton will undertake the signage and resurfacing works. Work started 24 April and is expected to take up to six weeks to complete.
