South Birmingham

The southern half of Birmingham area.


Bournville 3


  • A proper cycle path is needed alongside the Bristol Road.   There is plenty of space.
  • Although a shared use path has been built between Cob Lane and the Bristol Road (as part of the Merritts Brook Greenway), it is too narrow and twisty, and covered in loose gravel. As such it is all but useless as a cycle route.

Northfield 1

Northfield high street is awful for cycling, being congested with slow-moving cars.   On-street parking and difficult junctions add to the problems.   Consequently it is best avoided.   Unfortunately Maas Road was relatively recently made one-way, but without filtered permeability, so a quiet back road has become impassable.
