We asked

The scheme aims to improve the A457 Dudley Road by reducing traffic congestion through junctions and improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. This is an area of the city where we expect a lot of changes to happen in the next few years and for travel patterns to change.

The Barford estate consultation report is attached. 



Following a public consultation in November 2020  for the wider Dudley Road scheme, the city council has taken on board comments from members of the public and tried to include these within a revised design for the Barford estate area.

The following alternative proposals have been put forward:

  • The proposed road closure of Northbrook Street at its junction with Dudley Road would be retained, however the closure would be extended on Northbrook Street as far as Willow Gardens to provide a public space in the area outside properties 1-29 Northbrook Street.
  • The cul-de-sac between Barford Road and Northbrook Street would not be opened to through traffic
  • The section of Northbrook Street between Willow Gardens and Coplow Street would remain open to traffic
  • Improvements would be made to cycling and pedestrian provision from the junction of Coplow Street /Northbrook Street across North Summerfield Green to Barford Road, to enable better access and crossing facilities.
