Changes for traffic at Priory Crossroads (Priory Road/Bristol Road)
As part of the Birmingham Cycle Revolution works to create a high quality cycle route from Selly Oak into the city centre (along the A38 Bristol Road), changes to traffic movements at Priory Crossroads will be in operation from week commencing Monday 25 March 2019.
- Traffic travelling out of the city will not be able to make a right turn into Priory Road from Bristol Road. The left turn towards Edgbaston Cricket Ground will remain open.
- Traffic travelling into the city will not be able to make a right or left turn into Priory Road from Bristol Road.
Signage is in place at key locations in the area.
Network improvements have been made in advance of these changes so that local traffic can access suitable alternative routes. This includes an improved right turn into Pebble Mill Road, a new right turn into Wellington Road and improvements to the Belgrave Interchange.
An increase in congestion and delays is expected while road users get used to the new arrangements and find alternative routes where possible.
Please plan ahead and use public transport, walk or cycle whenever possible this will help to reduce congestion as well as being healthier and better for our environment. Find out more about safer, greener, healthier travel in Birmingham.
