Other transport projects

Under Birmingham Connected, many of our transport projects are aimed at reducing emissions and enabling more sustainable transport.

As part of the Clean Air Zone, a number of additional transport improvements including bus priority schemes and changes to parking have been designed on key transport corridors in the city.

Birmingham Cycle Revolution aims to make cycling an everyday way to travel in Birmingham over the next 20 years. We want 5% of all trips in the city to be made by bike by 2023 and to double this again to 10% by 2033. In 2017/18 we are building two new, high quality cycle routes, between Selly Oak and the city centre and between Perry Barr and the city centre.

Birmingham is creating Green Travel Districts; in areas where there are lots of people living and we aim to create an environment where people are put before cars, where residents, workers and visitors can safely walk, cycle or take public transport. The vision is for Districts with less congestion, less pollution, fewer accidents, and healthier, safer, more productive communities.

Alongside the Clean Air Zone we are reviewing and extending parking controls in and around the city centre.
