Improving the conditions of routes for walkers and cyclists is a top priority for the active travel project.
The Sustrans National Cycle Network Route 54 cuts right through the heart of Brierley Hill linking the town centres of Stourbridge and Dudley. This route has recently been upgraded along the Dudley No 1 canal towpath between Pedmore Road to Waterfront Way.
A number of active travel corridors have been identified that link the eight key residential areas within the centre.
These routes focus on using off road routes and quieter residential streets in order to avoid busy roads wherever possible.
Improvements include adding ‘time and distance based’ signs along these corridors to improve the walk and cycle experience and provide safe and convenient opportunities to travel around Brierley Hill Centre. Further improvements to paths and crossing points will be identified through street audits.
