Community interest - proposed widening of Moseley Road through Balsall Heath

Widening of the Moseley Road through Balsall Heath is proposed by Birmingham City Council and Transport for WM to make four lanes of traffic. This is to allow bus lanes in both directions to reduce delays to buses in peak periods.

The scheme requires narrowing of footways and loss of some mature trees. Other measures include different crossing points for pedestrians, moving of bus stops and changes to permitted parking.  The deadline for public consultation is 8th November.

There are three opportunities to view plans and share your thoughts. You can also look at documents and complete the consultation online.  More information, including dates of meetings, can be found at
