Connecting Bordesley Green

Closed 1 Mar 2024

Opened 22 Jan 2024


Connecting Bordesley Green wants to make the area better for walking, wheeling* and cycling and make it easier to travel by these sustainable modes. This will improve our physical and mental health and also help traffic congestion and air pollution.

* By ‘wheeling’ we mean people travelling using wheelchairs and other wheeled aids, such as mobility scooters, as well as pushchairs or prams.

The scheme aims to:

  • Improve pedestrian and cycle safety
  • Improve health and wellbeing
  • Reduce barriers to walking, wheeling and cycling

Corridors for Improvement

We have identified five corridors for action to address the issues identified and improve conditions for walking, wheeling and cycling in Bordesley Green.

These improvements will also provide better connections to public transport links and local facilities. We want to make walking, wheeling and cycling a more attractive travel option here by reducing barriers and providing greater priority for these users.

  • Corridor A: Jenkins Street/ Grange Road/ Green Lane/ Yardley Green Road
  • Corridor B: Bordesley Green Road/ Victoria Street/ Muntz Street/ Golden Hillock Road
  • Corridor C: Pretoria Road/ Third Avenue/ Green Lane/ Mansel Road/ Coventry Road/ Tennyson Road
  • Corridor D: Belchers Lane/ Tamarind Centre footway/ Heather Road/ Monica Road
  • Corridor E: Eastfield Road/ Little Bromwich Road/ Newbridge Road/ Heybarnes Road
