Support a cycle route between Kenilworth and Leamington now! (K2L)
Petition has closed and a council responder is preparing a response.

We petition Warwickshire County Council (WCC) to build a cycleway between Kenilworth and Leamington (K2L)by March 2022.We ask the Council to provide a time table by the end of 2019 detailing how funding will be obtained and when different parts of the work will be completed.


The K2L route will provide an important step in the transition to a low carbon and healthy transport system for Warwickshire. The route has been called for by many people and local groups for more than 20 years, the need is now urgent. Details of the K2L route are available from our website: https://www.cycleways.org.uk/long-term/k2l/


  • The UK Parliament has declared a climate emergency in May 2019, and the government commitment to reduce emissions cannot be met without changes in transport modes at the local level.

  • Leamington Spa has been repeatedly listed as one of the most polluted areas in England.

  • Kenilworth high street, Warwick Road, due to poor air quality, is in a Air Quality Management Area

  • The new leader of Warwick District Council, Andrew Day, has already spoken about the need to combat poor air quality and for WDC to move to a net zero carbon economy.

  • Warwickshire County Council has committed to reduce dependency on private cars by offering more travel choices in the form of sustainable models.

  • Improving cycle routes is a cost effective way of reducing traffic congestion, air pollution and promoting healthy physical activity.  

  • Leamington to Kenilworth is a 3 mile ride and would join with existing cycle routes, for example to the University of Warwick, thus a high uptake of the route is very likely.


In its transport proposals for the Warwick District Local Plan in January 2015, WCC included theK2L cycle route, as part of the A452 Corridor, the only direct route between the two towns of Kenilworth and Leamington Spa.

K2L delivers on all of Warwickshire’s Local Transport Plan 3 Objectives, 2011-2026:


  • To reduce transport’s emissions of carbon dioxide

  • Promote a strong local economy

  • Provide for better equality of opportunity

  • Provides a mode of transport that is beneficial to health

  • Reduce the impact of transport on the environment
