Major Changes are to take place to Bus Routes in South Birmingham including an additional no 1A through Moseley to the QE hospital.
Following last year’s consultation, National Express West Midlands have finalised the changes they will be making to their bus services in South Birmingham. The new routes will come into force on Sunday 22nd July.
The current no 1 will be replaced by:
• A new no 1 which will run from a loop round Shirley Road, Dolphin Lane and Olton Boulevard East to Acocks Green, then Springfield, Moseley, Cannon Hill Park and finally Five Ways.
• A new no 1A which will take the same route as the no 1 to Cannon Hill Park but then goes to the QE Hospital / University.
The 1/1A will run every 10 minutes to Cannon Hill Park and then every 20 mins to the QE and every 20 minutes to Five Ways.
The advantage is we now have a direct route from Moseley to the QE Hospital/University. The disadvantage is the number of buses from Moseley to Five Ways is reduced to every 20 minutes other than a couple of services at 08.30hrs
