"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!"

"Just signed! It's really needed on that busy commuter route into and out of the city. Totally agree with the comments in the petition. Although I think they'll be concentrating their efforts on the A34 & A38 cycle routes for now. I…"

Julie's petition for Hagley Road cycle lanes

http://epetition.birmingham.public-i.tv/epetition_core/view/CyclingLanesA friend was recently knocked off her bike at a Hagley Road pinch point, by an SUV driver who was recklessly hasty.The lawyers are dealing with the driver, and Julie has turned her attention to the Council. As of today, her petition has 4 signatories. I'm hoping there's more of a turnout before it expires on Sept 30.See More
