This scheme is part of a general carriageway improvement and adoption of Compton Park
St George’s Parade is a scheme that WCC hope to deliver early in the new year, subject to approval being given. This comes under the Local Growth Fund Managing Short Trips Programme, as does the Ring Road Route which they seek to deliver in 2016.
There is also a preliminary scheme in the Springfield area.
Members are asked to login into the website for details of that proposal.
"Dear Forum Member
Please find attached the draft text for our Active Travel Strategy. As you may know we intend to seek adoption for this at the Council’s Cabinet meeting on 9 December. We would welcome any comments you may have on it, please send them for my attention. In order to allow for full graphic treatment of the document and for our administrative processes leading to the Cabinet meeting, we must finalise the draft by the end of Friday November 6. Clearly this is the latest date we can consider any comments, sooner would be much appreciated.

I had an enjoyable and worthwhile day out at the Birmingham Bike Fest, held on Sunday 13 September. There were some good activities at the various stands, aimed at encouraging and enthusing people of all ages to try out and make more use of bikes for fun and transport. There was a family cycle route through a selection of nearby streets, closed off to routine traffic to allow a relaxed riding space for people who may rarely feel happy under normal circumstances for their children (or themselves) to ride on the roads.
Birmingham City Council, through Birmingham Cycle Revoloution and aided by various funding streams, presented a good number of brand new bikes.
Drawing the crowds were the BMX and Mountain Bike stunt riders, doing some impressive jumps, massive airs and acrobatics that I sometimes think we're expected to do to negotiate busy junctions where, as a rule, the cycle path ends abruptly!
