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 have significantly revised the proposals and carried out public consultation between 17 November and 15 December 2020.
We are now reviewing the consultation responses and will provide further updates in 2021.
