"Hagley road is like 6 lanes wide for a good odd mile at least. Then it narrows to 2 each way. Easily could fit in a shared cycle path on the narrower bit then a proper cycle lane into Broad Street would be nice I think!"

"I used that to report that the traffic lights at Tessal Lane weren't detecting northbound cyclists a couple of weeks ago, and got a response within a few days that they'd been out and tweaked the induction loop."

Come down to find out this dumb parade set up & Birmingham Council thought it was completely fine to block the bike lane, and let cyclist find alternative routes that are very dangerous, and long! No signs to alert cyclist route was closed, and many people cycling were very confused on which way to go.

This is very wrong of both this Parade,…
