Cycle route – Priory Road diversions in place

Motor vehicle access to Martineau Gardens is changing from February 2019 – due to the new cycle route there are restrictions on Priory Road for traffic travelling on the Bristol Road (A38), follow diversionary signs.  Please allow a bit longer for your journey.

Opening early May 2019, is a new 4km  cycleway along the A38 (Bristol Road) which will link Selly Oak and the University of Birmingham with the city centre.

At time of writing, we understand that access from A441 (Pershore Road) to Martineau Gardens will not be affected; bus services will stay the same. There will be a new pedestrian crossing at the Priory Road/Bristol Road junction.
