We did

Where possible the comments were incorporated into the final design. It is expected that the scheme will be delivered during spring/summer 2018.


Birmingham Cycle Revolution (BCR) is an exciting initiative to encourage more people to cycle in and around the city. Our vision is to make cycling an everyday way to travel in Birmingham. We want 5% of all trips in the city to be made by bike by 2023 and to double this again to 10% by 2033. This will help to make our city healthier, greener, safer and less congested.

As part of the BCR programme the City council is proposing to introduce a new Green Cycle Route Linking the existing cycle route from Birmingham City Centre via the Grand Union Canal to Birmingham Airport; it starts at Eaton Wood Drive and crosses Clay Lane into Lyndon Playing Fields, through Solihull and back into Birmingham finishing at Coventry Road. It will then connect to the existing cycle route through Sheldon Country Park.

The proposals for this scheme include:

  • Shared use footway/cycleway on Eaton Wood Drive
  • Un-controlled crossing on Clay Lane
  • Shared use footway/cycleway on Brindle Close
  • Cycle track through Lyndon Playing Fields
  • Uncontrolled crossing on Wagon Lane
  • On road cycle route along Keswick Road
  • Shared use footway/cycleway along Wagon Lane and Coventry Road

We would be grateful if you could give us your feedback and respond by no later than 6th October 2017.

These are preliminary proposals and may be subject to change depending on responses received to this consultation.
