Effect of transport proposals on journey times

  • An initial assessment of the effect of the measures has been undertaken using a traffic model developed for the Birmingham Road corridor.
  • The assessment looks at average journey times forecast in 2023 and compares a ‘do nothing’ scenario with the proposals. The headline results are summarised below.
  • A staged approach to the assessment has been undertaken, with the best performing proposal at each stage being taken forward.
  • Further assessment will take place once a preferred set of proposals has been identified following the public consultation.
