Improvements to Sanders Park, Bromsgrove

Work has now started on a programme of works to install a series of new, wider paths to improve walking and cycling routes through Sanders Park in Bromsgrove.

The programme of works includes a new 3.50m wide shared path which will run from Whitford Road in the east to Kidderminster Road to the north then south down to Watt Close.

There is also a 2.0m wide path being installed that will go from Leadbetter Drive across the playing fields to the small bridge over Battlefield Brook.

The wider paths will allow the park to be accessed by more users during all times of the year in all weathers.

 with onsite works due to start on the week commencing Monday, 18 March.
