The Iron Lane Junction Improvement Scheme was implemented to remove a major pinchpoint on the A4040 Outer Ring Road in Stechford, Birmingham while reducing severance for pedestrians and cyclists and improving access to several large urban employment/regeneration sites.

The site included improvements to approx. 1km of existing highway with the major sections of work including:

  • Widening approx. 370m of Station Road/Station Lane to create a dual carriageway.
  • Construction of a new 18m span dual carriageway road bridge over the River Cole.
  • Improvements to the Burney Lane/Stechford Lane/Station Road roundabout including a dedicated slip lane.
  • Replacement of the existing signal controlled gyratory at Station Road/Flaxley Road/Iron Lane with two new roundabouts (35m dia and 15m dia).
  • Construction of five new toucan crossings for cyclists and pedestrians.

This work was delivered as principal contractor on Birmingham City Council’s Highways & Infrastructure Framework using an NEC Option C contract.

A new concrete beam road bridge was constructed to carry Station Lane over the River Cole and full-depth carriageway construction was required to widen Station Road.

Two new roundabouts were constructed to replace an existing gyratory including placing decorative rock boulders.
