Birmingham City Council has published its latest consultation to install a two way cycle lane in Moseley Village on the out of city side of Alcester Road between Chantry Road and St Mary’s Row. The pavement will also be widened from outside Cafephilia and Maison Mayci to the start of the cycle way at the pedestrian crossing. The crossing will be upgraded from the existing Pelican to a Toucan crossing to allow pedal cycles to be ridden across.
The council is proposing the following changes:
- Removing on street parking to create a bi-directional, segregated cycle route on the south bound (out of city) carriageway of Alcester Road and St Mary’s Row (from outside the Co-op to The Bull’s Head)
- Upgrading the existing pelican crossing (outside Evergreen Chinese take-away) to a toucan crossing for use by pedestrians and cyclists
- Creating a shared use footway for pedestrians and cyclists linking the upgraded toucan crossing to future cycle route on Chantry Road
- Permanently widening the footway along the Alcester Road (outside of Cafephillia going south towards the Co-op)
- Constructing footway and ramps at the King Edward Road/Alcester Road junction
- Re-positioning bus stop (outside of Co-op) to accommodate cycle lane
- Creating two disabled parking spaces on King Edward Road and two on St Mary’s Row
- Creating a loading bay on King Edward Road
Sections of the cycle lane will be suspended for the monthly Farmers Market.
The consultation can be seen here and is open until 30th September.
