Introduction

We are proposing to make changes to the road layout on A457 Dudley Road, near to Birmingham City Hospital, to reduce traffic congestion through junctions, improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists and make provision for possible future public transport priority.

This is an area of the city where we expect a lot of changes to happen in the next few years and for travel patterns to change.

Most of City Hospital is expected to move to a new site nearby (in Smethwick) with about 750 new homes planned for the current hospital land. In addition, developments on the Icknield Port and Soho Loop sites, to the south of Dudley Road will incorporate approximately 1,200 and 700 new homes respectively.

The aim of these proposals is to improve the flow of people and goods through the area and to mitigate the expected increase in travel demand.
