Transport for West Midlands is planning to widen stretches of the Moseley Road through Balsall Heath, requiring the destruction of trees and the narrowing of footways. This will lead to even heavier traffic and a worse environment for pedestrians and cyclists. Yes, we want less delay to bus journeys, but this can be achieved by using the road more efficiently rather than widening it.
Birmingham Friends of the Earth will be submitting a petition as part of the public consultation into the proposed changes. Please sign our petition: https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/tell-birmingham-city-council-no-to-widening-the-moseley-road
You can make a more detailed response on Birmingham BeHeard. The deadline for public consultation is 22 November. All the documents are on online at Beheard https://www.birminghambeheard.org.uk/economy/alcester-road-bus/
