Riverside path to reopen after £620,000 facelift
A RIVERSIDE path in the city centre will reopen today after £620,000 of improvement works as part of the city's Riverlights development.
The path between Derwent Street and the bus station has been closed since August.
It was closed off to allow for refurbishment and now has new seating, lighting, trees, litter bins and a resurfaced footway.
Councillor Paul Bayliss, leader of Derby City Council, said: "Reopening this pop-ular route will allow better access around the Council House, from Derwent Street to the Morledge, as a new access ramp has been installed, allowing wheelchair access.

"The Boy and Ram statue has also been moved to a more prominent location next to the new path through the river gardens."
Landscaping work will be completed this month, and the section of path between the Riverlights and Bass's Rec is set to reopen by the end of the month. The city council has also revealed it is due to start work on an Olympic-sized swimming pool at the end of this year as part of the Riverlights redevelopment.
