New Fosse Way (Selly Oak New Road, Phase 1)
New Fosse Way (Selly Oak New Road, Phase 1)
Phase one of the Selly Oak New Road scheme involved the construction of a link road from the Queen Elizabeth hospital site and a continuation through to a new roundabout at Harborne Lane. This would have been an ideal opportunity to put in a really good cycle facility, you might think. Unfortunately the planners came up with a white line down the pavement and two way arrows on one side.

On the right can be seen new railway and canal bridges installed in 2010 as part of Phase 2 of the road scheme. Since this photo was taken a roundabout has been constructed in the area to the right. The new section of road through to Bristol Road at Bournbrook opened in August 2011.
