A34 Construction

A34 Scott Arms - Birmingham City Centre

We will shortly be starting work on the A34 between the Scott Arms Junction and Birmingham City Centre. Work is currently expected to commence on the 19th April 2021.

The Sprint works will require lane closures in each direction along parts of the A34 for up to six months with traffic management in place. We will notify residents in advance of any specific work being carried out near to properties and our public liaison officers will work closely with affected residents to ensure that access to properties and businesses is always maintained.

Please visit wmnetwork.co.uk/perrybarr for the latest disruption information and travel advice in this area.

Bus Shelter Upgrades

95 distinct and high-quality bus shelters will be installed along the Sprint corridor, providing easily accessible and enhanced waiting facilities for passengers. The new shelters will be larger and modernised compared to current bus shelters, and will contain seating, real time passenger information, and CCTV cameras to improve safety at the stops and surrounding areas. Our prototype shelter can be found at the Coventry Rd/Kings Rd stop on the A45 in Hay Mills.

Utilities work for new shelter installation is currently taking place along stops on the A34. The work is carried out in three phases beginning with the removal of the existing shelter. Utilities – such as communications cabling will either be relocated or replaced followed by a temporary reinstatement of the footway and shelter area. The new shelter will then be installed at a later date as part of other works in the area. 

Due to the sequencing of the works, there may be some time between the existing shelter being removed, the bus stop upgrade taking place and the new shelter being installed. The time between these activities will be kept to a minimum where possible to reduce any disruption. Residents living near bus shelters will be notified of any shelter works outside of their properties.
