Following completion of the community consultation the project is currently awaiting formal approval to proceed on site. This is estimated to be in May 2016.


Birmingham City Council is proposing refurbishment work to sections of the existing Rea Valley Cycle Route.  We will be carrying out minor resurfacing work to sections of the existing shared footpath & cycleway which runs from Pope’s Lane through King’s Norton Nature Reserve up to Westhill Road. 

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 Goverment'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!
