Keeping Moseley Moving - A report of our AGM by John Newson

Keeping Moseley Moving
Moseley Forum heard a talk by Anne Shaw Birmingham's Head of Transportation,
following the AGM on 19 June On cycling, she explained that it is difficult to
have separate cycle lanes, since traders object to a loss of on-street
parking. The new 20 mph speed limits should make it safer for cyclists and
pedestrians, but how to get drivers to adopt the lower speed? Phil Jones, a
local transport planner, said that removing white lines and pedestrian
railings do lead to slower driving. He showed examples of "shared
space" schemes giving slow but uninterrupted movement, as is happening in
Coventry City Centre. He outlined ideas for a shared space junction in
Moseley. Traffic flows are the issue, but Phil Jones showed them being static since
2000, while Anne Shaw said the Council is planning for less traffic in future.
A technical study would evaluate if redesign of the junction is feasible.

There was some hopeful news about re-opening stations at Moseley and Kings
Heath, from Toby Rackliff, the rail development manager at WM Integrated
Transport Authority. He said the cost of a curve into Moor Street station
could hardly be justified by a local service, but that there were good
strategic arguments to relieve New Street and link East and West Midlands and
High Speed Rail. Freight traffic is not increasing as predicted, so the line
can run more passenger trains. Mr Rackliff will advocate 2019 as a start date.
There will be public consultation in the next few months, so another chance
to put the case. One study has found that a passenger rail service could take
one million car journeys off the roads per year, so it seems that rebalancing
space on our high streets becomes more possible, if we are to be railway
suburbs once again.
