A461 Cycle Path

Closed 13 Oct 2023

Opened 25 Sep 2023


Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council is excited to share with you proposals for an upgraded section of cycle track between Dudley Port Railway Station and Great Bridge along the A461. This follows the receipt of funding from the Department for Transport, called the Active Travel Fund, as part of the Government’s announcement in November 2020 to invest in high-quality cycling and walking infrastructure across England to make local journeys safer for all.


It is hoped that the fully segregated cycle route will give residents the confidence to embed cycling and walking into their travel arrangements, which will in turn have positive impacts on air quality and the environment, as well as the health and wellbeing of residents. The route improvements consist of: 

  • 1.2km of two-way segregated cycle tracks, ensuring cyclists are separated from both pedestrians and traffic
  • New crossing facilities,
  • Upgrading existing crossing facilities,
  • Movement of bus shelters so that they are closer to the station and near crossing facilities
  • Adjustment of kerblines allowing the widening of footways
