Improved “Town Centre Approach”
Solihull Council is working on improving the access for pedestrians and cyclists between the town centre and Solihull Station with the “Town Centre Approach”.
The purpose of this scheme is to deliver a package of connectivity improvements along the route between Solihull Train Station and Solihull Town Centre, via Station Approach, Blossomfield Road and Homer Road.
The first stage of the scheme will include a new crossing at Blossomfield Road and improved widening of pavements on Station Approach and Homer Road. The changes will create more space and priority for pedestrians and cyclists and make Solihull Town Centre and the Station more accessible and attractive to commuters and visitors alike.
One-Way in Operation
From Monday 5 March works on Station Approach will commence. In order to carry out the works safely a one-way system will be in operation throughout the period. The one-way will divert traffic into Station Approach via Streetsbrook Road and there will be a 10 mph speed limit imposed.
The trial closure has completed but the restriction to the left turn from Blossomfield Road will remain in place to accommodate the one-way operation.
Please be assured that access to premises will not be restricted but we do ask you to take care when entering or passing through this area.
During the construction period, the following bus services will be affected: 30, 31, S1, S2, S3 and S3W. For up to date information regarding the affected services please click here.
The construction works are phased to ensure that disruption is minimised. Please ensure that you follow the directional signage to ensure that you can reach your destination as quickly as possible.
Thank you for your understanding whilst we make these improvements.
