Birmingham City Council is inviting feedback on some temporary measures to make walking and cycling easier and safer in residential areas. These two Low Traffic Neighbourhoods pilot projects form part of the Emergency Birmingham Transport Plan to ensure a low carbon, clean air recovery from COVID-19.
To begin with they will be temporary schemes, built quickly to provide safe space for walking and cycling as we emerge from lockdown. The Birmingham commonplace website lets people comment on proposals and make suggestions for other places that need attention. People can also see comments left by others and quickly give them a thumbs up or thumbs down if they agree or disagree.
The projects on this site and the site itself are funded by the Department for Transport from the West Midlands Combined Authority's award of £3.85m from Government for active travel. Birmingham's share of this money is just over £1m.
