Pell Frischmann Appointed to Deliver Birmingham’s City Centre Active Travel Schemes
Pell Frischmann is delighted to have been appointed to deliver the new Active Travel schemes in the City Centre for Birmingham City Council (BCC) during 2021.
Active Travel Schemes in the City Centre look to support and encourage active travel as the country emerge from the coronavirus crisis.
Following Pell Frischmann’s success in supporting BCC to develop the Emergency Active Travel Fund schemes in 2020 – which included the swift intervention to make cycling and walking safer in response to Covid-19, Pell Frischmann is thrilled to have the opportunity to aid the delivery of the Active Travel schemes again this year. Work this year will involve building upon 2020’s projects and making some of them more permanent to create an environment that is safer for both walking and cycling.
The project consists of the design of a package of measures to promote active travel within Birmingham City Centre, such as:
- Segregated cycleways;
- Contraflow cycle lanes;
- Bus borders;
- Footway widening;
- Modal filters; and
- Rearrangement of on-street parking.
Pell Frischmann’s Highways & Transport Divisional Director, Himanshu Budhiraja said:
This is a fantastic scheme that will allow cycling and walking to enable people to make journeys in a safe and sustainable way. In the long run, it will also help deliver significant health, environmental and congestion benefits for Birmingham and its surrounding areas.
Pell Frischmann is proud to be supporting its clients in developing COVID-19 safe infrastructure and helping the country get back up and running.
