Cars potentially banned from Birmingham city centre

View original Cars potentially banned from Birmingham city centre

BBC News has reported that private cars could be banned from taking “through trips” across Birmingham city centre under plans to cut pollution. The City Council’s newly published transport plan states that private vehicles will be able to drive into the city, but would have to use the ring road to access other areas. Under the plan, public transport would be the “preferred choice” for travelling and city centre streets would be pedestrianised and integrated with public transport.

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
