Work is has mostly been completed on Route K, which runs along Streetsbrook Road between Station Approach and Bryanston Road. These improvements involved an upgrade of the existing footway to aid the natural drainage of surface water.
We will during autumn 2020 be laying out wildflower turf and planting bulbs around Jubilee Gardens on Homer Road, Streetsbrook Open Space/Road, Tudor Grange Park and Monkspath Hall Road. The wildflower areas will be treated early September in preparation for laying later September or in October. Please bear with us as the ground will turn brown for a little while.
Also in St Alphege, Route L saw the widening of footpaths on Monkspath Hall Road and the route now has bulbs (alliums, crocus) and colourful wildflower turfing. At Tudor Grange Park new wildflower areas have been set out. Wildflower beds and trees have already been added to Malvern and Brueton parks.
These works form part of a borough-wide project 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.
Our contractors, Balfour Beatty, will be widening and connecting existing paths and cycle routes with green spaces. idverde will be planting 800 trees, 3.5 million bulbs, wildflower turf and grass seed.
