This page is now closed for feedback. Details on further development of this scheme through the Active Travel Fund programme in 2021 can be found here .

This scheme was delivered on a temporary trial basis in 2020, and we are reviewing whether any of these measures should be modified or made more permanent. If you have any questions, please email connected@birmingham.gov.uk.

Bradford Street (City centre cycle access)

We are reallocating road space and suspending some on-street parking to create a two-way, light segregated cycle route with priority crossings at side roads. This is being delivered alongside the city centre traffic cells initiative.

Measures will include:

  • Shared use footway/cycle track at Moat Lane to enable cyclists to use existing pedestrian crossing facilities and connect with the proposed A34-A38 cross-city cycle route at Edgbaston Street/Park Street
  • Two-way segregated cycle lanes on Bradford Street, with build outs where the cycle lane passes bus stops to make it safer for people boarding buses.
  • Signal-controlled junctions at Bradford Street/Rea Street and Bradford Street/Alcester Street with proposed advanced stop lines for cyclists heading into city (who remain on carriageway) and short sections of shared use footway/cycle track for cyclists heading out of city (to enable cyclists to cross with pedestrians)
  • Shared use footway/cycle track near Camp Hill to enable cyclists to use existing pedestrian crossing facilities and connect with the proposed A45 cycle route at Trinity Terrace and Bordesley Middleway
  • Signage to make all road users aware of the cycle route
  • Please note that this scheme is being delivered on a temporary trial basis for the next few months, with the potential for these measures to be made more permanent as part of the Birmingham Walking & Cycling Strategy & Infrastructure Plan .
