Bromsgrove Route Enhancement Programme

Worcestershire County Council’s A38 Bromsgrove Route Enhancement Programme (BREP) has been included in a priority list of schemes for government funding by Sub-national Transport Body Midlands Connect, with a funding request for £42 million to deliver it.

The proposed scheme is amongst 11 in the Midlands submitted to the Department for Transport, as part of a £3.5 billion fund.

The BREP follows work that began last year to make improvements to the junction with Barley Mow Lane, M5 Junction 4 and M42 Junction 1. 

This new wider proposed programme of works is being developed to deliver additional improvements on the A38 corridor between Lydiate Ash and the Hanbury Turn and consists of 12 individual schemes.

The priorities for the overall scheme include:

  • reducing congestion, increasing journey time reliability and reducing travel costs
  • supporting economic and employment growth
  • supporting all road users by increasing connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists
  • supporting access to and from the M5 and M42 strategic road network (SRN)

Information sessions 2020

We held five information sessions where the project team were on hand to answer any questions that were raised about the Bromsgrove Route Enhancement Programme. During these sessions we gained a lot of feedback that will help support the next stage of the bid to the DfT.

If you were unable to make it to one of the sessions or would like to view each of the 12 proposed schemes in more detail, please see below.
