This page is now closed for feedback. Thank you for your comments and feedback so far. Further development of this scheme will take place through the Active Travel Fund programme in 2021. Find out more here .
A number of temporary trial measures will be installed in Stirchley local centre over the next few weeks to create safer space for people and enable social distancing in this area of high footfall.
Proposed measures include:Footway/pavement widening to create additional space for people and spill out activity, including through the suspension of some on-street parking. Reallocation of road space on the northern side of the gyratory (Hazelwell Street) to enable people to maintain social distancing. Junction improvements at Bournville Lane to make it easier for people to cross on foot, by installing a central refuge and temporary ramps. Surface treatments at crossing points and on side road junctions along the high street to emphasise these locations to both pedestrians and drivers. Potential for more cycle parking in the area to encourage local trips by bike (let us know where you think this is needed).
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 if this is something people want to see happen.
