Iron Lane junction improvements roadworks began in March 2019, and should take about 18 months.
McPhillips Ltd are doing this work on behalf of Birmingham City Council.
We will be holding a Meet the Contractor event on Tuesday 16 April between 2pm and 7pm, at Christ Church Burney Lane, Birmingham B8 2AS.
The event is a chance for you look at maps of the final scheme and talk to the design and construction teams from Birmingham City Council and McPhillips.
This is a ‘drop-in’ event; come any time between 2pm and 7pm.

- Birmingham City Council emergency contact: 0121 303 4149
Key improvements are:
- Widening of Station Road / Stechford Lane (between Burney Lane and Flaxley Road) to a dual carriageway
- New road bridge over the River Cole
- Changes to Burney Lane / Stechford Lane / Station Road roundabout. This includes a new dedicated slip lane from Stechford Lane to Station Road, to allow traffic heading towards Stechford to bypass the roundabout.
- Replacement of the existing signal controlled gyratory system at Station Road / Flaxley Road / Iron Lane with two new roundabout junctions. One of the roundabouts will form the access to Flaxley Parkway and the Stechford Retail Park
- Five new toucan crossings (for cyclists and pedestrians) will be created
During the roadworks, temporary lane closures will be needed to allow construction activity to be carried out safely; most of this will happen at night. Narrow traffic lanes will operate during the day when required; daytime lane closures would only be applied when and where unavoidable. Access to properties and businesses will be maintained through the work.
