Boulevard scheme

The boulevard scheme's aim was to create a tree-lined street to make the most of Swansea's stunning natural location by improving links between the city centre and its waterfront.


The project generates better links between the city centre and the waterfront because of the introduction of high-quality crossing points at key locations. It's also become a far more pedestrian-friendly environment thanks to the installation of wider pavements.

Other features of the project have included the planting of scores of new trees and other major environmental improvements in areas like Museum Park, Burrows Place and Adelaide Street.

The project team would like thank motorists, residents and employers for their patience throughout the project. The finished scheme delivers an improvement of a major city centre gateway and help change visitors perceptions of the city centre.

The project was funded by the Welsh Government's Regeneration Area programme, the European Regional Development Fund and Swansea Council. It followed on from works to change traffic flows at the River Tawe bridges that were recognised for excellence by the Institution of Civil Engineers.

Funding for these schemes was ring-fenced and time-bound which meant it could only be spent on this project, with all works completed by 2015.
