Birmingham City Council Transportation have just started the development of a City Centre Cycling Strategy, to look at the role cycling can play in the city centre within the (Middle) Ring Road, and including crossing points of the Ring Road. They want to identify priority routes for cyclists – which can include roads, public squares, towpaths, etc. They are asking for the opinions of cyclists and those who would like to cycle. Either ideas for good routes, or details of hazardous areas, would be welcome. Any matter relevant to city centre cycling can be included.
Please email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org and put City Centre Cycling Strategy in the subject line, preferably by Friday 19th October if possible.
(Many thanks to one of our readers, Stefan, for alerting us to this council request).
