Emergency Active Travel Update


Solihull Council has undertaken a further review of the remaining temporary Emergency Active Travel measures this week. These are the measures put in place to make it safer and easier for residents to walk and cycle while maintaining social distancing. It has been agreed by Cllr Hawkins, Cabinet Member for Environment and Highways, that a number of amendments should now be made in response to feedback from local residents and businesses, and to aid the overall operation of the road network.

The following changes will come into effect overnight on Tuesday 3 November:

Solihull Town Centre

  • Homer Road – the current one-way system will be removed and two-way traffic reinstated.
  • Station Road – the reopening of all disabled parking spaces adjacent to the service road.
  • Warwick Road at Poplar Road – the temporary lane restriction will be removed to aid traffic flow.

Shirley Town Centre

  • Stratford Road Service Road adjacent to Shirley House, 154 Stratford Road – the reopening of the disabled parking spaces fronting shops in this area.
  • Stratford Road Service Road adjacent to Shirley Baptist Church, 144 Stratford Road – the reopening of this service road, parking spaces and loading area fronting shops in this area.

All remaining measures will remain in place at the current time and will be reviewed over the next two weeks to assess and determine whether it would be appropriate to amend any of the remaining measures in place.
