We Asked

We consulted on the proposed Selly Oak New Road (SONR) Phase 1B highway improvement scheme in September 2016. SONR 1B scheme consists of highway improvements to the ‘Selly Oak Triangle’ made up of Bristol Road, Harborne Lane and Chapel Lane. The scheme aims to provide improved access to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and development sites on the Birmingham Battery Site. In addition the scheme aims to provide additional traffic capacity and support the regeneration of Bournbrook / Selly Oak local centre.
