A47 pop-up cycle lane


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.

City Centre to Fort Dunlop (A47 corridor)

We are reallocating road space and making improvements to access and signage to better connect the city centre and its Learning Quarter (including Aston and Birmingham City Universities) to Nechells, Saltley and, via the existing cycle route on the A47, to key employment sites at Fort Dunlop and Jaguar Land Rover at Castle Bromwich.

Measures will include:

  • Two-way segregated cycle route with small sections of shared footway on Jennens Road (James Watts Queensway to Bloomsbury Street)
  • Bus stop relocation (on Jennens Road) to existing bus stop on Park Lane to accommodate the two-way segregated cycle route
  • No left turn for motor vehicles from Nechells Parkway to Bloomsbury Street to reduce conflict with cyclists
  • Improved signage
  • 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 .

    A47 pop-up cycle lane

    We've created some temporary ‘pop-up’ cycle routes across the city to provide safer space for cycling.
