The Great Birmingham Run 10K event is taking place on the streets of central Birmingham on Sunday 1st May 2016. The start is in Jennens Road at 11am with the finish in Broad Street. Details of the event, including the route and the associated road closures are indicated on the event web site.
A number of major investment projects are currently underway in Birmingham City Centre including the redevelopment of Paradise Circus, construction of the Midland Metro City Centre extension tram system, redevelopment of Gateway (New Street Station) including the surrounding highway network and construction of the Grand Central shopping complex. These and other developments will enhance the local economy by improving the transport infrastructure and enhancing Birmingham as an international business, commercial and retail centre and visitor / conference destination.
The scale of the investment does however present challenges in managing traffic as significant sections of the highway network are affected during construction work. Every effort is made to organise temporary traffic management arrangements effectively and appropriate signage is provided to indicate both traffic regulations and appropriate routes for through traffic and to specific destinations in the city centre.
Birmingham City Council is constantly improving the quality of information we provide to the emergency services, media and members of the public and the Roadworks map provided by Elgin, which delivers real-time access to local roadworks information from the majority of the 175 local highway authorities of England and Wales.
