A casualty reduction scheme is being designed for the High Street, Birmingham Road. The scheme has associated waiting restrictions, banned turning movements, weight limits and 20mph zone.

Scheme Overview

A Casualty Reduction and capacity improvement scheme which seeks to reduce personal injury accidents at the junction between High Street, Birmingham Road and Blythe Road within Coleshill and increase capacity by signalising the junction was approved for the Capital Programme in November 2019, to be implemented in 2022. The junction of Birmingham Road/Blythe Road/High Street features consistently on the County’s annually produced list of junctions with a poor safety record as the junction has a long-standing history of being a casualty hotspot for traffic collisions resulting in personal injury.

The scheme at the junction of Birmingham Road/Blythe Road/High Street will include banning right and left turns from every approach. This will lead to alternative routes being signed for through traffic and local destinations. As part of the scheme it is also proposed to introduce No Waiting at any Time & No Loading at any Time restrictions on the approaches to the junction. Additionally as part of the scheme it is proposed to introduce a 20mph zone in Coleshill as detailed in drawing No. TR/11374-10.

Scheme Update - January 2022

Thank you to everyone who took the time to attend the Green Man crossroads public exhibition at Coleshill Town Hall. We have received over 150 responses to the public notice, a fantastic level of engagement for a locally based scheme, and this shows great strength of feeling towards the proposals to improve safety and capacity.

Many responses included detailed comments and suggestions, and we want to make sure that we have fully understood this valuable information before proceeding to the next stage.

Currently we are reviewing the proposal with respect to the movement of traffic flows. During this time the proposals shall be developed further and we will publish the preferred option at an appropriate time.

We will issue a further update about the project in Spring 2022.
