20mph is Plenty in Central South Birmingham (area A3)

Overview

This consultation is about changes to speed limits in Moseley, Kings Heath, Springfield, Sparkbrook and parts of Balsall Heath. Before responding, you should look at the plans provided which will tell you the proposed speed limit for each road.

In 2013, we asked everyone in Birmingham about the principle of introducing 20mph speed limits on the city’s roads to improve safety and reduce the number of accidents. This area is the first where changes will take place. The purpose of this consultation is to ask local people about the appropriate speed limit for the roads in their area.

As a result, the project has been progressed and approved by Cabinet, with the following amendments to the proposals:

  • Edward Road(Area 4 - Balsall Heath) is now all proposed 20mph. The consultation showed the section between Pershore Road and Constance Road as remaining at 30mph.

  • Part Time (variable) 20mph limits are also proposed to be introduced outside or near some schools in the project area, on roads which will otherwise remain at 30mph. These proposals will be finalised and consulted on separately.
