City centre roadworks

If you are planning a visit to Birmingham Children’s Hospital, please be aware that roadworks are ongoing in the city centre that may affect your journey.

Starting from 8pm on 14 July 2017 there will be regular weekend closures of the M6 junction 6 and the A38(M) Aston Expressway throughout the school summer holidays.

Diversions will be in place but please consider public transport where possible during these times. 

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.

If you need help to plan your route, try and or use a Birmingham cycling and walking map.

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.
