County Council to decide on further improvement works on A38 in Bromsgrove

Harry Leach 15th Oct, 2020

A PROPOSED scheme to make further improvements to the A38 in Bromsgrove is set to go before Worcestershire County Council next week.

A decision will be made on whether the works can move on to the next stage of submitting the £42million funding bid to the Department for Transport.

The aim is to build on the major work that’s already underway, to reduce congestion and improve walking and cycling paths around the town.

Councillor Ken Pollock, the council’s cabinet member with responsibility for economy and infrastructure, said: “A lot of work has gone into the proposed programme of works.

“This includes the public engagement sessions that happened earlier this year.

“Now is the time for the cabinet to take a look at these proposals and make a decision to move them forward to the next stage.

“We’ve already made a start on improving this corridor and these additional schemes would go a long way in improving reliability of journey times for those who travel by car.”

The proposed scheme is among 10 in the Midlands submitted to the Department for Transport, as part of a £3.5 billion fund.
