Feedback Updated 24 Aug 2015

We Asked

For your views regarding a proposed new link road, extending the existing Battery Way and connecting with Reddings Lane opposite Olton Boulevard West. The scheme would provide access to a new development site, whilst improving traffic flow and helping reduce congestion on Weston Lane and the local highway network. The proposed works would include a new single lane carriageway, with footway, cycleway and landscaped areas. Two public consultation exhibitions were carried out at St Edmunds Church on Thursday 12th February 2015 and Saturday 14th February 2015. The closing date for feedback was Friday 27th February 2015.

You Said

Your feedback was very gratefully received. We received a total of 43no. responses from the public and 98% were in support of the scheme.

We Did

Following such positive feedback from the consultation we are currently developing the detailed design for this scheme, which has now received planning permission. Funding is currently being secured and the Full Business Case will be presented for final approval before the end of the year. Assuming both funding and final approvals are in place, the proposed works are due to start in Summer 2016.

Overview

Extension to the existing Battery Way at the junction of the A41 Warwick Road/Battery Way to Reddings Lane in Tyseley.

Why We Are Consulting

We would appreciate your views on the extension to Battery Way through former industrial land. The new link road is proposed to be a single lane carriageway with new footway, cycle lane provisions and landscaped areas providing access to the new development site together with improving traffic flow and helping to reduce congestion on Weston Lane and the local highway network. It is anticipated the new development site will potentially provide 345,000sq ft. of industrial development land and up to 1100 jobs overall. The new link road is subject to securing planning consent and full business case approvals.

Those submitting a consultation response will be replied to at the earliest opportunity. Comments will be used in order to inform the scheme development.
