City centre road works and M6 junction closures affecting journeys to Birmingham Children’s Hospital
If you are planning a visit to Birmingham Children’s Hospital, please be aware that two separate sets of road works have started in the city centre that may affect your journey, affecting Paradise Circus and junctions five, eight and nine of the M6.
Paradise Circus works
From January 2015 the Paradise Circus works will affect bus routes and vehicle access to the city centre. The roads that are closed will vary depending on the phase of the project.
For the latest information about the work, closures and diversions in place please see the Paradise Birmingham website.
Advice provided by Birmingham Connected
Birmingham Connected advise that public transport should be used wherever possible, even if your journey to the city centre doesn't use the roads immediately around Paradise. For more information on rail, bus and Metro services, and an interactive journey planner, visit Network West Midlands.
Cycling and walking
If your journey is relatively short, consider cycling or walking. Pedestrian and cycle routes will be maintained throughout the development and there is ample cycle parking in the city centre. For journeys beginning in the city centre, consider joining Brompton Dock for convenient cycle hire.
Travelling by car
If you need to travel by car, use alternative routes if you can. If you still need to drive into the Paradise area, you should allow extra time for your journey because you may face delays and follow the diversions on the map provided in the pdf document.
You can find out more about the works on the Paradise Birmingham website, which includes a section specifically about local access arrangements.
Overnight closures of Corporation Street, Wed 21 – Fri 23 Sept
Essential roadworks mean Corporation Street, near our Steelhouse Lane site, will be closed for three consecutive nights between 8pm until 6am from Wednesday 21 to Friday 23 September. During these times, there will be a diversion in place around Queensway and up Whittall Street at which point workers will be on hand to marshal traffic moving in both directions on Steelhouse Lane. This will ensure that our main entrance and Emergency Department remain accessible when necessary.
