Transforming the city centre is one of the big moves outlined in the draft Birmingham Transport Plan (January 2020).
To achieve this, fundamental changes to how the city centre is accessed were proposed as part of a city centre ‘traffic cells initiative’.
The area within the A4540 Middleway will eventually be divided into six city centre segments.
The map below shows the six proposed city centre segments and the main roads with access to each one.
The A4540 Middleway borders the map and the city centre core is in the middle, with access prioritised by walking, cycling public transport.
