Cycling in and around Birmingham England

I don't want to get into a debate about the riskiness of cycling over tramlines but can somebody advise what the layout will be when the trams head up to Five Ways?

I'm sure I remember reading that cars won't be allowed down Broad Street so I presume it will be one tram lane and one bus lane. Can anybody confirm?

Collecting evidence from the website, current road layout, and the original set up of the bicycle banning on the extension between Snowhill and New Street, its very safe to assume cycling will be banned on both Hill Street and also on Broad Street I am sorry to say. They already made bike bans on Corp Street for cyclists because of the trams.

Birmingham Connected seemed very happy and pleased they banned cyclists on Twitter few months ago. What have they done in the past several years for cyclists? NOTHING!

As to weather cars will be allowed or not I am not sure. I would assume cars will STILL remain as being banned on that section of Broad Street. I would not see why they would reopen it to motor traffic. It would be pretty stupid of the council if they did reopen to cars as they CLAIM they want to get the city to be a more car free area.

I've ridden the tram route from Stephenson Street to Colmore Row loads of times and will be cycling on Broad Street too. There might be a no cycling sign near the Apple Store but I've never seen it officer I'm very sorry. I'm not sure what the plans for Broad Street are.

This film shows plenty of cyclists, pedestrians walking and riding with trams and tram tracks.

It shows an urban environment that predates dates the car .- in Stockton on Tees

And here are some videos by people who also thought they would be just fine.
