New city centre bus scheme proposals: Have your say
Posted on: 22/02/21
As Birmingham works towards a low-carbon, clean air recovery from COVID-19, public transport improvements are being made to make journeys quicker, easier and more reliable. Travelling by bus means less congestion and better air quality.
Transport for West Midlands, part of the West Midlands Combined Authority and Birmingham City Council are working together on four road schemes in Birmingham city centre which aim to improve bus travel. Hackney cab users/drivers, motorcyclists and cyclists will also benefit from these schemes.
In the West Midlands, the government has committed to fund a series of new bus priority measures. These schemes are the beginning of a journey to unlock and free buses from delays in the city centre and support the wider delivery of cross-city bus routes.
These schemes will benefit almost 40 million passengers per year, providing new bus only roads, junction upgrades and enhanced waiting facilities.
You can use an interactive map to see the proposals, which are located on Margaret Street, Bristol Street, Newhall Street and Snow Hill Queensway.
Alternatively, you can download a leaflet to read the same information about the proposals.
