BCR Bourn Brook Walkway Link to Harborne Lane

Closed 30 Jul 2017

Opened 10 Jul 2017


This new link will create a better access for all from Bourn Brook Walkway on to Harborne Lane and further onto Selly Oak and The University. The existing access adjacent to the petrol station is very narrowand not possible to widen this section.

This proposed scheme will link the existing route to Harborne Lane with new 2.5m wide path and metal bridge over Bourn Brook. Please see attached layout for further details.

These proposals form part of the Birmingham Cycle Revolution (BCR) project which is developing a network of routes through green open spaces and along canal towpaths. The project is also developing routes on main roads, quieter back street roads, 20mph speed limit areas and other supporting measures including cycle parking. 

The project is jointly funded by Birmingham City Council and The Government’s Cycle City Ambition Grant. As well as building routes like this, the project is working with schools, workplaces and at leisure centres to get more people cycling.  There are many ways you can get involved!  Check the website at http://www.birmingham.gov.uk/bcr
