Widening of the Moseley Road through Balsall Heath is proposed by Birmingham City Council and Transport for WM, so as to make four lanes of traffic. This is to allow bus lanes in both directions, so as to reduce delays to buses in peak periods.

The scheme requires narrowing of footways and loss of some mature trees. Other measures include different crossing points for pedestrians, moving of bus stops and changes to permitted parking.

Deadline for public consultation is 8th November. All the documents are on online at Beheard https://www.birminghambeheard.org.uk/economy/alcester-road-bus/
