IMPROVEMENT works along the A38 corridor in Bromsgrove will get underway this month.
A new toucan crossing on the A448 Stratford Road, adjacent to Blackwood Road and Fordhouse Road, and a segregated footway/cycleway between Harvington Road and Charford Lane will be built.
These works will start tomorrow (February 15) and are part of three schemes being delivered by Worcestershire County Council, prior to the wider A38 Bromsgrove Route Enhancement Programme (BREP).
The works will make additional improvements and link into other schemes to enhance the cycling and walking network in and around the town.
County Councillor, Ken Pollock, said: “These schemes will add to the big improvements that we’ve already made to the cycling and walking network in Bromsgrove.
“We have brought these schemes forward to ensure that we continue the momentum in providing high quality walking and cycling routes, which provide attractive opportunities for people to use alternatives to their cars.”
Some traffic management will be required on the A448 Stratford Road, though this will be kept to a minimum, so as not to restrict access to the Artrix Covid-19 Vaccination Centre.
Works on the third scheme will get underway in March and will include an upgrade to the northern footpath on Charford Road between the A38 and South Bromsgrove School and the installation of a new toucan crossing.
