Bristol Road cycle route consultation again.

After the consultation back in late spring this year and the delays due to a challenge from residents on Wellington Road, Birmingham City Council has launched a new statutory consultation on the Traffic Regulation Orders needed to carry out the work on the Bristol Road cycle track. Push Bikes are keen to see this route approved and delivered, as for the most part it is well designed and high quality, providing a good link between Selly Oak and the city centre.

Consultation: Cycle Parking in the city centre

As part of the Birmingham Cycle Revolution (BCR), extra cycle parking in the city centre (inside the middleway) is being installed to help people lock up their cycles when they reach their destinations. Following an informal consultation process earlier this year, the BCR team are consulting on final plans for this wave of cycle parking. The consultation can be found on the Birmingham BeHeard website, and closes on the 1st December 2017.

A34 City Centre to Heathfield Road cycle track approved

The plans for the A34 cycle route was approved by Birmingham City Council on the 1st November. The plans for the route have been delayed due to challenges to the A38 cycle route (over the turning into Wellington Road), and extra work was done on an air pollution assessment. But the route has been less controversial due to the space along the A34 meaning that no new motor traffic restrictions have been needed.

Report from BCR stakeholders meeting April 2017

Every month, Push Bikes campaigners attend the Birmingham Cycle Revolution (BCR) stakeholders meetings to discuss developments with the various BCR programmes. This is an update on some of the main points that I have taken away from the meeting in April. I intend to do regular updates on these meetings, so watch this space in the coming months.

A34 segregated cycle track consultation

As part of the Birmingham Cycle Revolution (BCR), a new segregated cycle route from Birmingham city centre to the Heathfield Road junction is being consulted on now. (The BCR team will be drawing up plans for the next section to reach Perry Barr OneStop soon.) This consultation is the second of a pair of consultations - the other consultation is the A38 Bristol Road consultation.
