Overview

Improvement Works to Snow Hill Square: Public Consultation

The City Council and Colmore Business District in partnership with Transport for West Midlands are developing proposals for improvement works to Snow Hill Square. Consultation on the proposed works is currently underway and will run until Wednesday 2nd November 2016. If you would like to make comments on the proposals, or have any queries, you can find out more within the attached documents  below;

The proposed improvements include new high-quality paving, new lighting, new seating and soft landscaping including trees and decorative planting, and will extend the square partially into Colmore Row. The works will also make allowance for the potential opening of a new basement restaurant at 1 Colmore Row. The improvement works are planned to take place between spring 2017 and summer 2018.

To achieve the desired improvement of the Square and Colmore Row the following highways measures are also proposed to be carried out at the same time:

  • Removing the right-turn from Livery Street to Colmore Row
  • Introducing two-way flow on Livery Street between Cornwall Street and the Livery Street car park entrance
  • Swapping the location of the bus-stops on Livery Street and the taxi rank in front of Snow Hill Station
  • Rerouting Bus Routes 7, 46 and 101
  • Reconfiguring the junction of Colmore Circus Queensway/Snow Hill Queensway

 

The improvement of Snow Hill Station Square is part of the implementation of the Snow Hill Masterplan (adopted October 2015) which sets out an approach to maximise the development of the Snow Hill district, including transformational improvements to Snow Hill Station to provide improved pedestrian and public transport connections from the Square to the rest of the City.

Conditional funding is provided for the project by the Local Growth Fund (LGF) and contributions are committed from Colmore Business District, the Enterprise Zone and Local Businesses.
