How do you usually travel in or through this area?
Do you have any comments about the A47 pop-up cycle lane installed last year?
It is fantastic! Please keep up the good work and make these cycle routes permanent!
Do you have any suggestions for further improvements to make it safer and easier to cycle here?
Safe, segregated cycle paths are a key part of keeping people active and healthy, and reducing localised air pollution from vehicles. Please make it safe to cycle in Birmingham!
Which of the following would encourage you to consider cycling/cycling more?
• Cycle paths/routes
• Appropriate clothing & equipment
• Cycle training
• Access to a bike
• Cycle parking/storage
• Safer roads
• Someone to cycle with
• Slower traffic
How do you feel about plans to make it safer and easier to cycle in this area?
Add your like! More reaction types are coming soon.
• Car/van - as driver
It sounds very welcome I drive through this area as it is really hard to choose a safe and usable cycle route I have not used the temporary route as I normally travel through the area for work purposes but if a permanent safe cycle route is to be installed I will be making use of this.
Enforcement of vehicle speed and cycle priority for cycle lane at side junctions with signage and a different pavement surface or change to junction layout to encourage car drivers to slow down and cede passage.
This will cause enormous congestion when life returns to normal
• Public Transport
Only praise! Physically separated cycle lanes are a godsend, especially in this part of the city which is such a nightmare to cycle in.
Please make it permanent & extend it further.
• Physically separated cycle lanes like this one -- i.e. not just painted-on.
At the city end of the route I would like the lane to be extended straight on to Moor St Queensway, certainly for one more 'block' and ideally as far as Moor St Station. There is plenty of road-space for this and it would just require the introduction of a bike phase at the traffic lights at the end of Jennens Rd.
Having a properly segregated cycle lane feels (and surely is) so much safer than just road markings.
