The first phase of the transformation of Paradise at the heart of the city is well underway.
This includes the demolition of some of the existing buildings to clear the site for the new development, together with work on the new road layouts to improve connectivity and access across the city for both road users and pedestrians.
Investment in transport improvements is an essential part of Birmingham’s future growth and prosperity.
The redevelopment of Paradise will not only generate thousands of new jobs but will also help to improve access across the city for both road users and pedestrians.
Paradise is delivering:
• New road layouts to ease traffic flow.
• Wide, level pedestrian routes making it easier and safer to move between the Jewellery Quarter, Broad Street, Colmore Business District and the city centre.
In addition, Paradise will support proposals to extend the Metro tram network to Centenary Square and to develop the first Birmingham Sprint bus route between the city centre and Quinton.
The new road layout will have reduced capacity through to completion of the scheme in summer 2017 when two lane running on Great Charles Street in and out of the city will be reinstated.
This will be followed by Centro works for the Centenary Square Metro extension which are expected to complete in 2019.
Disruption/delays should be expected during the first phase of works which are scheduled for completion in summer 2017.
It is strongly recommended that alternative forms of transport should be used during the Paradise works.
Use public transport wherever possible.
