Public Engagement Exercise A38 BREP Scheme 3 and Scheme 5

Scheme 3 (Harvington Road to Old Station Road) and Scheme 5 (Fordhouse Road to Carnforth Road)

This public engagement exercise has now finished.

What happens next?

The comments received during the Engagement Exercise are currently being considered and may be used to revise the proposals where appropriate prior to the planning application.

Generally, it is not possible to respond directly to individuals, however a summary report of the exercise will be published on the website in due course and unattributable comments could be included.

Worcestershire County Council would like to thank any participants for providing comments, which will be treated in confidence.

You will have another opportunity to make comments during the formal planning consultation process currently planned for Autumn 2021.

Information on Schemes 3 and 5

As part of the proposed walking and cycling improvements within the A38 BREP, Schemes 3 and 5 provide improved connectivity between the west and east sides of the A38 for pedestrians and cyclists.  

Worcestershire County Council has commissioned Alun Griffiths Contractor Ltd and their designers Burroughs to support the Planning Application for Scheme 3 and 5.

The schemes will be submitted as two separate applications

  • Scheme 3 is a proposed new pedestrian and cyclist bridge between the junction of Harvington Road and Old Station Road on the west of the A38, and the junction of Stonehouse Road and Warwick Avenue with Old Station Road on the east. It would replace the existing unsignalized at-grade crossing, which would be removed once the bridge is completed
  • Scheme 5 is a proposed replacement pedestrian and cyclist bridge between Fordhouse Road on the west and Carnforth Road at Finstall First School on the east, with improved gradients and width suitable forboth pedestrians and cyclists, particularly given the route is on National Cycle Network (NCN)5
