Following a large road scheme to improve the A38 traffic between Lydiate Ash and Hanbury Turn, work is taking place on schemes to improve cycling and walking routes in Bromsgrove.
Two new schemes are taking place this month, the first of which is a new toucan crossing being installed on the A448 Stratford Road. The other scheme is a new segregated footway/cycleway being created between Harvington Road and Charford Lane.
In March, there's more good news for those on foot and two wheels, with an upgrade to the northern footpath on Charford Road between the A38 and South Bromsgrove School. Alongside this, there's also another toucan crossing being installed in the same location.
All of these developments tie into the current schemes in place to enhance the walking and cycling network.
The work is being funded by the Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (WLEP) and is set for completion in the summer. Gary Woodman, Chief Executive of WLEP, said: “This work on the A38 corridor is vital to helping improve active travel across the county, providing congestion-easing benefits for businesses, commuters and visitors alike.
A bid for £42 million has been put in for government funds for the A38 road improvement scheme.
