Access Audit: Consultation Event

13 June 2024
11:00 - 14:00

Colmore BID, in partnership with Transport for West Midlands (TfWM), has funded an access audit for cyclists and other users of our streets.  

We have appointed Sustrans to undertake this project, using the last tools and techniques.  The project will influence Birmingham City Council’s planned work across the city centre.  We are starting with Colmore Row as the principal street in the District.

This is the opportunity to have your say!

The Colmore Row consultation session is an interactive and informative event taking place in person.

Join us for a unique opportunity to walk and wheel through the infrastructure on Colmore Row, to gain experience and encourage discussion about accessibility with Sustrans experts. 

We are particularly welcoming those with lived experience to share their experiences so we can hear your voices. This hands-on session will give you insights into making our city more accessible for everyone. Don’t miss out on this informative and engaging event!
