Over the next five years, lots of new housing will be built near Dudley Road, increasing the number of people wanting to travel in the area.
We are therefore planning to improve the A457 Dudley Road to:
- upgrade facilities for pedestrians and cyclists,
- provide new bus lanes,
- reduce traffic congestion through junctions.
In 2018, we asked for your views on a scheme proposal for the area. Following public feedback and the publication of our Emergency Transport Plan, we significantly revised the proposals and carried out public consultation in late 2020.
Phase 1 works on Western Road are now due to commence on 14 June 2021, to support the construction of the Soho Loop development.
