Over ?1.5m of improvement works are set to begin on a major road between Stoke-on-Trent railway station and the city centre this week.
The improvements are being made to Boughey Road as part of the wider Transforming Cities Fund Programme (TCF), which sets out to transform connectivity across the city. At the heart of the scheme are improvements to public transport, cycling and walking in the city and creating a better connection between the railway station, city centre and key employment sites across the area.
The works will deliver an eye-catching revamp of the area, helping to form a more attractive and easier to use route for people to walk between both Staffordshire University Leek Road and College Road campuses. The road layout will be altered at Boughey Road to make it easier for pedestrians to navigate while the public realm will be improved to provide a gateway into the university. Paving will be upgraded to complement that already completed in and around Spencer and Thornton Roads while on-street parking will be retained for long-term residents living on Boughey Road and for customers of local businesses.
Taking approximately 26 weeks, the works are the latest in a series of public realm investments in and around the University Quarter and railway station. A number of complementary schemes have already been completed in the surrounding area including in Winton Square/Station Road, Glebe Street, Thornton Road/Spencer Road, funded by the city council, through the first tranche of the city? TCF Programme and as part of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Local Enterprise Partnership? City Centre Access Programme.
There are expected to be a number of benefits from the scheme. Improving the surrounding area in and around the university and railway station will improve the perception of the city for visitors to Stoke-on-Trent. The scheme will also make it easier for staff and students to move between the Leek Road and Boughey Road Campus

A community action week which includes revamping facilities, tackling litter and fly-tipping, and targeting drug-dealing and anti-social behaviour, has been launched in Tunstall today (28 June).
The initiative was launched by Stoke-on-Trent City Council leader, Abi Brown, and Stoke North Neighbourhood Policing Team? area commander Chief Inspector Simon Brownsword.
They will be working with partner agencies from housing, charity and other sectors with events and activities to promote crime prevention, health and well-being, public safety and environmental awareness in the area.
There will be advice on tenancy issues and grants from Housing, while members of the Highways team will be repairing potholes and repairing and cleaning gulleys and painting lines and railings.
There will be advice and support for those wanting to improve garden areas and develop homes or empty homes. Experts will also be on hand to assist those who are vulnerable and need support or advice with addiction or debt or homelessness.
There are plenty of opportunities for local residents to meet police officers and discuss any concerns they have about their community or crime-related issues and advice. The mobile police station will be located from 9am to 3pm at Jasper Square on Monday, Asda on Tuesday, Tower Square on Wednesday, Alexander Retail Park on Thursday, and the market on Friday.
A number of law enforcement operations will also be taking place across the week so residents can expect to see an increased police presence, tackling issues such as anti-social behaviour, theft, driving offences and vehicle crime.
Specialist teams will also be on hand to offer support and advice about drugs, alcohol, employment and housing and there will be community litter picks with volunteers.
Chief Inspector Brownsword, who began his role as senior officer for Stoke North last week, said: ?e?e looking forward to continuing our work with partners who will be available all week to offer advice and support on a huge range of topics.
?e hope to see as many people as possible and make a positive difference to the community in Tunstall.?
Stoke-on-Trent City Council leader Abi Brown said: ?his is the latest in a number of weeks of action and activities in the heart of communities right across the city. It? about bringing partners and a range of services together to make a real difference to residents and improve the local area. There will be a lot of activities taking place in Tunstall throughout the week to give really targeted support to those who may need it, so please say ?ello?and meet the teams, we are here to help.?
