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.

Selly Oak to Northfield (A38 extension)

We are reallocating road space in Selly Oak local centre to create a cycle route between Selly Oak Triangle and the Birmingham Cycle Revolution A38 cycle route, improving connections to University of Birmingham, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the city centre. We are also extending this cycle route to Northfield town centre.

Measures will include:

  • Contraflow cycle lane on Grange Road to connect with the existing A38 ‘blue’ cycle route by the University of Birmingham
  • 20mph speed limit on High Street to make cyclists and pedestrians feel safer
  • Two-way segregated cycle route on High Street (Grange Road to Dale Road)
  • Segregated eastbound cycle lane and shared use footway/ cycle track on High Street (between Selly Oak Railway Station and Dale Road)
  • Bus stop relocation (outside Aldi) to reduce conflicts with turning vehicles from Hubert Road plus build out at bus stop for boarding
  • 30mph speed limit on A38 Bristol Road South, between Langleys Road and Northfield town centre
  • 24-hour bus, cycle and taxi lane on the A38 Bristol Road South (between Langleys Road and Northfield town centre, with exception of section next to the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital)
  • Please note 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.
