Birmingham Cycle Revolution is making cycling easier and more accessible, for transport and for leisure, in Birmingham. We want our city to be less congested, greener, safer and healthier.
Our vision is for 10% of all journeys in Birmingham in 2033 to be made by bike.
The full route will provide 4km of two-way, segregated cycleway along the A34, joining Perry Barr with the city centre and linking to Newtown Wellbeing Centre.
Our aim is to provide an easy and comfortable cycling experience on a route which new and existing cyclists feel confident using. The route is direct and gives cyclists protection from traffic and prioritised travel through junctions.
We are now consulting on the section of the route between Lancaster Circus and Heathfield Road/Trinity Road, just under 3km in length.
These artist's impressions show how parts of the route will look:
Along New Town Row, the cycle track will run on the west (outbound) side of the road. Cyclists will be at a different height to both pedestrians and traffic. The bus in the picture is travelling north, towards Perry Barr.
North of New Town Row, the route continues on the west (outbound) side of the road. Cyclists will be at a different height to both pedestrians and traffic. The red and white lorry in the picture is travelling north, towards Perry Barr.
At Rodway Close, the bus and traffic lane are realigned to accommodate the new cycle track. The picture looks north, towards Perry Barr.
At Lozells Road, the route takes some of the existing wide footpath to create segregation between cyclists and pedestrians. The picture looks north, towards Perry Barr.
If you are interested in the details of how the route will work you can look at the drawings we have produced below. If you are interested in a particular part of the route, the first page, with red boxes, should help you find the right plan. These drawings can also be downloaded as a PDF at the bottom of this page.
On the drawings, the cycle track is shown in blue to make it easy to see. The actual colour of the route’s surface has not yet been decided.
What happens next?
Once the consultation has closed, we will read and consider all the feedback we have received before finalising the route's design. We hope to begin construction later in 2017.
