The next phase of a £14.05 million programme of improvements to Birmingham’s ring road is due to get underway.
Work is due to start at the Haden Circus junction on 27 July and continue for approximately 37 weeks. The project includes changes to the junction’s lay-out designed to ease traffic flow together with safety improvements for pedestrians and cyclists.
Most work will be conducted overnight to minimise the impact of the works.
The Ring Road improvements package is partially funded by the Department for Transport, Centro, and the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership through Enterprise Zone funds. A condition of the central government support is that the programme is completed during this financial year.
Cllr Tahir Ali, Birmingham City Council’s cabinet member for development, transport and the economy, said: “The ring road pinch points programme is an important part of our ‘Birmingham Connected’ vision to transform the city’s transport network. It will bring much needed improvements at some of our busiest road junctions, supporting Birmingham’s continuing economic development and growth.”
