Transport Plan for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games

Over the next few weeks comments, thoughts and feedback are being welcomed from YOU, the lovely residents and businesses across the West Midlands, on a draft plan for Games Strategic Transport Plan for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.


So, what’s this all about?

The draft plan provides a high-level view of transport preparations for B2022 and sets out which transport projects will be delivered in time for the Games, such as the first phase of three new Sprint routes, improvements to rail stations and the expansion of the Metro network. With just under three years to go until B2022, it doesn’t cover the exact details of how transport will work between venues or what road restrictions will be in place and when.


What do we need from you?

As part of the engagement process, Transport for West Midlands are asking if you lovely people agree with five principles for planning which are detailed in the plan and how they would like to be kept in touch as plans develop.


How can you get involved?

You can read the plan, take the survey and find out more by visiting - the window closes on 6 December 2019, so you’ve got a few weeks to get your thoughts across! Also, there are events being held across the West Midlands as listed below.
