A38 Bromsgrove Route Enhancement Programme (BREP)
The A38 is one of Worcestershire's most important strategic transport routes.
Users of the A38 corridor in Bromsgrove currently experience congestion and delay at key junctions, causing irregular journey times. The need to improve the A38 corridor from Lydiate Ash (M5, Junction 4) to Hanbury Turn (junction with B4091 Hanbury Road) was identified in Worcestershire’s Fourth Local Transport Plan.
