School Road in Moseley is used by many drivers to bypass both Kings Heath and Moseley local centres. This means the road gets very busy, particularly during rush hour and school run times, with vehicles often attempting to pass each other at narrow sections of the road. The situation is made worse by the number of parked cars obstructing people and vehicles travelling on this route.
We have received numerous concerns from local residents in School Road and the surrounding area about the safety of the road, traffic congestion and parking – particularly during rush hour and school run times.
Over the last year, we have worked with local residents and considered a number of possible options to improve road safety. The preferred option is an experimental (temporary) closure of School Road between Cotton Lane and Greenhill Road.
