BCR progress update March 2018

Work starts on the A38 cycle route

The Birmingham Cycle Revolution (BCR) programme has entered into the final year of funding through the Cycle City Ambition Grant from the DfT, but this year we should see the biggest changes (finally) on the roads of Birmingham, with the delivery of 2 main road cycle tracks and a cycle hire scheme. It is not clear how the BCR programme will continue after this year - there has been a bid put in for some Cycle Safety Fund money from the DfT, but that is small and limited.

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.

Do you have any suggestions for Selly Oak?

The Selly Oak Green Travel District (GTD) is the first of several GTDs that will be established across Birmingham. These will bring together local organisations and businesses to try to improve travel options in that area to promote green travel. The Birmingham Cycle Revolution has allocated some funding for delivering some improvements for cycling focused around the GTD areas, including Selly Oak GTD. There has been a request for local cycle users to suggest locations where some changes could be made.
