Live Construction Work
Construction work is now well underway between Perry Barr railway station and the Scott Arms junction.
Fitzgerald Construction Ltd - our main construction partner along this section of the route – are currently working to extend the right hand turn lane to improve traffic flow at the busy Scott Arms junction.
Work has also started on carriageway excavation to allow for road widening on a 400m long section heading south at Harris Drive.
Lane closures are in place in each direction along the A34 to provide a safe area for work on the central reservation.
The lane closures will then begin to switch to the outside lane over the next few weeks to allow work to begin on widening the highway and to install bus lanes on certain sections. Once complete the A34 will return to being a duel carriageway with no loss of carriageway space.
We are also installing bus shelters along the Sprint corridor. Information on these works will be in our Latest Notifications for Residents section on the right hand side of this page. They will also be detailed alongside all of our other ongoing works on the West Midlands Network website.
