Helping people to walk / get around Birkdale Village (Weld Road) - Public Engagement

Closed 7 Apr 2024

Opened 11 Mar 2024


The Weld Road area of Birkdale Village has been identified as having poor  facilities for those walking around the area. The current traffic lights are not designed for those walking to cross and there are limited crossing points within the village. 

Weld Road is a key walking route to Birkdale Village. The section between York Road and Lulworth Road is in poor condition and there are no crossing facilities at the junction of Weld Road and Lulworth Road.

It is proposed to resurface the footways along this length and also provide push button crossing facilities at the junctions.

Improvements to the Weld Road area of Birkdale Village include the following:

1. York Road and Weld Road Junction - New controlled crossings for those walking on the York Road / Weld Road traffic signal junction.

2. Weld Road and Lulworth Road Junction - Upgrade of existing traffic signals to include crossings with tactile paving and push buttons for those walking across Weld Road and Lulworth Road.

3. Improved footpath upgrades with new crossings - Footpaths along Weld Road will be improved. Existing dropped kerbs are to be replaced with tactile paving.

To view the proposed designs of the junction improvements, scroll down below or go to the bottom of this webpage to related documents.

This early engagement is to ensure that you are aware of the proposals and the benefits for those walking around Birkdale Village.  We are still developing these plans and looking at how we may fund them. 

The council acknowledge that there will be scope for some changes and will use your feedback to identify any specific concerns as we move towards finalising our plans.
