Sprint

Bus Shelter Upgrades

Ends: Ongoing

Last updated: 5 January 2021

What’s happening?

Sprint is a bus priority corridor that will link Walsall with the centre of Birmingham, Solihull and Birmingham Airport - joining the A34 with the A45 to create one continuous bus route.

Sprint will bring benefits for all bus passengers: providing more reliable, regular and predictable journey times, connecting our region and protecting our environment too.

A milestone project, Sprint is being delivered by Transport for West Midlands and forms part of the region-wide ambition to improve the public transport experience.

Bus Shelter Upgrades

In preparation for Sprint, we will be upgrading bus shelters along the A34/45 Sprint corridor.

Utilities work for bus shelter upgrades is expected to begin at the following stops in January 2021:

  • A34, Booths Farm Road – Inbound towards Birmingham
  • A34, Booths Farm Road – Outbound towards Walsall
  • A45, Holder Road – Outbound towards Solihull

The current bus shelter will be removed and a temporary stop for you to catch your bus will be located near to the current shelter.

Travel tips

You will still be able to get to where you need to go, but consider the following:

Plan ahead and leave more time for your journey. If you travel, you’ll need more time for your journey to take account of changes and diversions.
