Birmingham City Council has published its plans for the first batch of 20mph limits, covering Moseley, Kings Heath, Springfield, Sparkbrook and parts of Balsall Heath – and is asking for local cyclists’ views.

Most roads will get a 20mph limit if the plans are accepted. The current 30mph limits will be kept on “classified roads” – that is, A and B roads – “and other main routes”.

The 20mph scheme is part of Birmingham’s £24m Cycle Revolution project, which aims for 10% of journeys to be made by bike by 2033.

You can see detailed plans, and fill out an online survey, at the Birmingham Be Heard website.
