K2L, abbreviated from Kenilworth to Leamington, is a campaign to highlight the need for a high quality cycle route to be provided by Warwickshire County Council.  It is an easy 3 mile commute. We believe this route is essential and should be an integral part of the Warwickshire cycle network.

The K2L route is included in the transport proposals for the A452 corridor as part of the Warwick District local plan. The route follows the west side (right side) of the A452 from Kenilworth to The Chesford crossroads, then changes to the east side (left side) for the remainder of its route into Leamington.

SECTION 1:  Kenilworth Jet Garage Roundabout to Thickthorn Roundabout

Start at the Farmer Ward Road/Birches Lane junction. Includes a new Toucan crossing near Bullimore Grove entrance (good news for bus users and pedestrians, as well as cyclists).

SECTION 2: Thickthorn (A46/A452) Roundabout

Major improvements to cycle facilities (e.g. traffic signals) can only be carried out in conjunction with other major developments here (e.g. Thickthorn housing), so deferred.

SECTION 3: Thickthorn Roundabout to Bericote Roundabout

New bridge over the Avon  and crossing the flood embankment with a series of small bridges.

SECTION 4: Bericote Roundabout to Sandy Lane

An important 900m section of off-road cycleway avoiding the narrowest stretch of the A452.

SECTION 5: Sandy Lane to Blackdown Roundabout

SECTION 6: Blackdown Roundabout to Cloister Crofts junction

Includes upgrading the signalised crossing beyond Cloister Crofts to a Toucan (designed for both pedestrians and cyclists) crossing.
