The markings are designed to guide the public on how to follow social distancing and are to be launched on Broad Street in Birmingham.

Two-way markings stretching 100 metres are to be laid from the junctions of Gas Street and along Broad Street to Berkley Street.

Mike Olley, general manager of Westside BID, who is laying the markings, said:

We hope that the pilot will be seen as a successful way to help businesses in our area to prepare to reopen, keeping staff and visitors safe when Birmingham’s ‘golden mile’ starts to re-open.

This pilot fits in with our emergency Birmingham transport plan and we will do everything possible to support Westside BID to make this happen.
