Solihull Council is working on improving the access for pedestrians and cyclists between the town centre and from Solihull Station with the ‘Town Centre Approach.’
The first stage of the scheme will include a new crossing at Blossomfield Road, the widening of pavements on Station Approach and Homer Road and improvements to the carriageway surface. The changes will create more space and priority for pedestrians and cyclists and will make Solihull Town Centre and the Station more accessible and attractive to commuters and visitors alike.
Sign up to our Stay Connected bulletin to receive updates on the scheme straight to your email at www.solihull.gov.uk/stayconnected and search for the ‘Town Centre Approach’ bulletin under Solihull Connected.
There will be opportunities for commuters and shoppers to find out about the scheme and to fill out a quick survey about the next phase of improvements.
The engagement events will be held on:
• Wednesday 6 December 8 – 9:30am and 4pm – 6pm at Solihull Station
• Wednesday 13 December 10 – 2pm at The Core
Councillor Ted Richards OBE, Cabinet Member for Transport and Highways, said: ‘This scheme aims to put the priority on the safety of pedestrians and cyclists whilst also improving the environment of the station and town centre.’
‘We want to make sure getting from the station to the town centre is as easy as possible for people and we hope that this scheme will enable us to achieve this.’
The construction is due to start in Spring and aims to be completed by the Summer.
