Where?

The map below shows the routes which have been completed and are now available for use:


Six routes have been chosen for pop-up cycling infrastructure. They are all sections of route that have already been identified as priorities within the Birmingham Walking and Cycling Strategy and Infrastructure Plan and form part of the proposed West Midlands regional cycle network.

  • City centre to Small Heath (A45 corridor) - provision of light segregation and links along quiet streets and traffic-free paths to provide a safer parallel route to the A45 between the city centre (Bordesley Circus) and Small Heath.
  • Selly Oak to Northfield (A38 corridor) - reallocation of road space in Selly Oak local centre to create a two-way light segregated cycle route between Selly Oak Triangle and the Birmingham Cycle Revolution A38 ‘blue’ route. Light segregation and/or shared bus and cycle lanes along the A38 between Selly Oak and Northfield town centre.
  • City centre to Fort Dunlop (A47 corridor) - reallocation of road space, direction signs and other access improvements to connect the city centre and its Learning Quarter (including Aston and Birmingham City Universities) to Nechells and Saltley. This will also link, via the existing cycle route on the A47, with key employment sites at Fort Dunlop and Jaguar Land Rover at Castle Bromwich .
  • City centre to City Hospital via Jewellery Quarter - reallocation of road space, direction signs and other access improvements to support travel by active modes to City Hospital, Jewellery Quarter and city centre.
  • Bradford Street (city centre cycle access) - reallocation of road space to create a two-way, light segregated cycle route, aligned with the city centre traffic cells initiative (also being brought forward as part of the Emergency Active Travel Fund).
  • A38 to A34 (city centre connection) – linking the A38 and A34 Birmingham Cycle Revolution schemes, to enable cross-city centre trips. This will also connect with the Bradford Street and A47 corridor routes (above).
