Moor Street Queensway Bus Gate consulation
Preparation for HS2 will require the closure of Park Street later in 2020. At the same time, Birmingham City Council is proposing some traffic changes in this part of the city centre. This will enable Moor Street Queensway to become a key Gateway into the city centre ahead of the opening of HS2 and other long-term developments in the area.
Delivering these changes at the same time as the closure of Park Street will prevent a high proportion of traffic from transferring onto Moor Street Queensway, which could have a detrimental impact on the reliability of bus services and also raise safety concerns, particularly for pedestrians and cyclists.
We are proposing to introduce a Bus Gate on a section of Moor Street Queensway between Moor Street Station and the junction with Carrs Lane. This will restrict northbound and southbound access for private vehicles except for buses, cyclists and hackney carriages.
Consultation closes 28th February 2020.
