Phase 2 and 3 of BREP follow Phase 1 that began last year to make improvements to the junction with Barley Mow Lane, M5 Junction 4 and M42 Junction 1.
The priorities for the phase 2 and 3 scheme:
- 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)
Phase 2 A38 BREP Schemes
Phase 2 consists of three schemes (scheme 2a, 2b and 4) to make improvements along the A38 corridor in Bromsgrove. These works commenced in Spring 2021.
The works include the installation of a new Toucan Crossing of the A448 Stratford Road, adjacent to Blackwood Road and Fordhouse Road, a segregated footway/cycleway between Harvington Road and Charford Lane and an upgrade to the northern footpath on Charford Road between the A38 and South Bromsgrove School and the installation of a new Toucan Crossing.
Funding to deliver the works for phase 2 has been provided by the Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership.
