Council consultation on new cycle routes in central Dudley.

Dudley Council has launched a two-week consultation about its proposals for new cycle infrastructure in central Dudley.

The local authority has been granted funding from the Department for Transport to design and install cycle lanes on the A4123 Birmingham New Road from Tipton Road Junction to Castle Road Junction.

Proposed work includes a segregated cycle route, new crossing points and alterations to the Dudley Canal and Caverns Trust entrance, and the consultation can be viewed here. Councillor Damian Corfield, cabinet member for highways and environment, said:

"We have successfully applied for funding through the Government’s Active Travel Fund, which is established to address transport inequalities, reduce car dependent journeys, and reduce carbon emissions.

"We are asking people to have their say on these proposals, which form part of a network of future walking and cycling routes to be delivered over the forthcoming years."

Councillor Dr Rob Clinton, cabinet member for climate change, added: "We are looking to make these route improvements to encourage residents to consider including cycling and walking more often in their travel arrangements.

"This will assist local air quality and environmental impact whilst improving the general health and wellbeing of residents."

Dudley Council launched two other cycling and walking schemes in 2022 following the receipt of funding from the Department for Transport via the Active Travel Fund. The schemes were implemented along a section of the Birmingham New Road (A4123) and along a section of the A456 at Halesowen.
