Below are two Westside Weekly newsletters released by the Midland Metro Alliance which is the developer of the Metro Tram Extension to the west side of Birmingham from the centre.
The newsletters regularly report on progress.
These contain IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON ROAD CLOSURES AND TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS.
In addition to the traffic flow information given in the newsletters below, MMA has stated in a “Sheepcote Stakeholder letter” that:
“From Monday 6th August 2018, for approximately one month, the junction of Sheepcote Street and Broad Street will be operating with manual traffic signals as MMA carry out utility works. The current permanent automatic traffic signals will be suspended. Access will be maintained for all throughout these works.”
Please Note: We have asked the MMA for clarification on what is the likely disruption to traffic flow at the Sheepcote Street/Broad Street junction so that commuters can decide on an alternate route should they so wish.
If we receive further information we will publish it as soon as possible.
