NEW CYCLE PATH PLANNED – BRISTOL ROAD

Birmingham City Council plans to undertake highway works to deliver a segregated cycle route along the A38 between Selly Oak and Birmingham City Centre. This will involve the introduction of a number of Traffic Regulations Orders (TROs), which will result in the restricting of vehicle movements along the Bristol Road (A38) corridor. These restrictions to turning movements are necessary to install the proposed segregated cycle route.
We are now seeking views on the proposed TROs. The consultation period runs from Thursday 23rd November to Thursday 21st December 2017. Please note that previously received objections (in March and April 2017) to this scheme will be considered alongside any new objections.
Further details of the proposals; drawings, a statement of the Council’s reasons for the proposals and relevant technical information, are attached or may also be examined (by appointment) during normal working hours at:
Edgbaston District Office, 1A Vineyard Road, Northfield, B31 1PGLadywood District Office, Summerfield Community Centre, Winson Green Road, B18 4EJ
