Iron Lane Junction Improvements

Iron Lane / Station Road / Flaxley Road - Junction Improvements

Birmingham City Council has secured funding from Central Government as part of the Local Growth Fund for highway improvements at Iron Lane / Station Road / Flaxley Road, in order to better manage traffic and provide the additional capacity necessary to support economic growth. Proposals for the highway improvements are shown on drawings CA-02709-S1-008 and CA-02709-S1-009.

The main elements of the scheme are:

  • Demolition of the Flaxley Road Snooker Hall (approval secured through the PDD);
  • Widening of Station Road (between Burney Lane and Flaxley Road) to dual carriageway, including a new road bridge structure over the River Cole to allow for a dual carriageway section between Burney Lane Roundabout and a new gyratory at the junction of Flaxley Road / Iron Lane and Station Road;
  • Modifications to Burney Lane / Stechford Lane / Station Road roundabout including new dedicated slip lane from Stechford Lane to Station Road;
  • Replacement of the existing signal controlled gyratory system at Station Road / Flaxley Road / Iron Lane with two new roundabout junctions;
  • New shared use and segregated cycle / footways;
  • Five new Toucan crossings and relocation and upgrading to a Toucan of an existing pedestrian crossing;
  • Provision to allow for a left turn into Stechford Road from Stechford Lane;
  • A new access to proposed development land;
  • A one way slip road from Albert Road onto Station Road (northbound), creation of a parking bay outside properties 51 to 61 Station Road and a service road for properties 16 to 30 Flaxley Road;
  • Revised bus stop locations and a new bus stop on Station road opposite the Stechford retail Park.
