Kingshurst and Fordbridge
The Wildlife Ways project in Kingshurst and Fordbridge will see the planting of over 65 semi-mature trees and almost 100,000 bulbs including daffodils. Wildflower seeding will also take place across the area along with widening of the footpath through Babbs Mill Park for pedestrians and cyclists.
Work is now underway on Route H, where the works will involve an upgrade to the existing pathways and a new pathway through Babbs Mill Park between Cooks Lane and Yorks Wood. The plans for Route H can be viewed below.
Along Chester Road we have been carrying out wildflower seeding and turfing on several of the verges and central reservations. More trees have also been added.
These works form part of a borough-wide project which is designed to make Solihull greener. Part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the project will open up and improve existing routes, allowing wildlife to flourish and helping people to walk and cycle across the borough.
