Access for Poolhouse during the Bike Ride

Although the Velo Bike Ride on Sunday 24th September 2017 will be an excellent event in the Village, there is much to be worked out in terms of road access.

Here’s an update regarding the Poohouse estate access:

“Managed Access will be provided to residents of the Pool House Road estate throughout the road closure period. A single cone line will be installed from the western exit from Millfields Way (closest to Bridgnorth Road B4176), along Pool House Road and onto the B4176 (southbound) towards Wombourne.

Cyclists will be kept to the left hand side as the turn off the B4176 onto Pool House Road, leaving a lane open to facilitate access from the estate to the B4176. Please note that the eastern Millfields Way exit onto Pool House Road will remain closed throughout the day, there will be no access right onto Pool House Road and north on the B4176.

Properties on or accessed directly from the route of the road closures requiring access in the hours of the closure are advised to relocate vehicles in areas not affected by the closure restrictions.”

Here’s a detailed map:

  1. We live in Van Diemans road, Wombourne and need to get to the Bell at Trysull, by 12.30, for an organised lunch, please explain how we can manage it. This was organised last January.

    • Jenny, you need to get in touch with Velo direct asap because as things are at present you cannot get through! Contact: route

  2. What about the houses on pool house road as i also have work to get to and this only shows access for the estate. Also i work at halfpenny green vineyards.

  3. Will the vineyards be open during the morning. Your vehicle could be parked on Poolhouse Estate but I would question whether you are going to be able to cross Poolhouse Road during the event.

      • Unless you make use of parking on Poolhouse Saturday then walking to your vehicles BUT crossing the road, even on foot during the event is going to be problematic!

  4. I fail to understand how the event will help the village in any way. Watching cyclists in a race may be exciting but 4 hours is stretching it. Who will travel from Birmingham to watch a race that starts and finishes in Birmingham?

  5. Has any notification of road closures been published and what if we have to get to work. There is currently no access to Staffordshire golf club or the vineyards hardly going to help the area!!!!! Not happy!!!!

  6. So I am advised to park elsewhere if I wish to go out on this morning
    Please advise car parking spaces available for the residents of pool house bearing in mind most households have minimum of 2 cars per household
    With the current crime rate of vehicle theft at its highest for the wombourne area my concern would be to leave my car overnight anywhere
    will my insurance be valid for this if it’s stolen or damaged ?

    • VELO have now arranged for Poolhouse residents to be able to get in and out via B4176 as per the plan above. However, Tollhouse Way, Bratch Common Road, Bumblehole, Bratch Lane, Orton Lane, Strathmore Crescent, and all others connecting to the above roads or Poolehouse Road or Ounsdale Road are presently stuck. Contact route@velobirmingham.com

  7. I think this complete lack of respect for residents and businesses is a joke! You cannot tell people to park their vehicles elsewhere, and completely cut off people’s access, these are people’s homes, is the council going to offer people reduced council tax for this major disruption or reimburse them for various events they have organised way in advance? This velo and the council are a complete joke

  8. I have to get to my horses in Swindon, but all roads are closed, what will I do???? Plu s I have to go to work and wont be able to get out to get there. I hope I will get compensated for loss of pay!!! NOT HAPPY!!

  9. How are carers going to get to the people they care for who need them? How are people going to get to work? Being held hostage by a cycle race – how is that good for the village? Upsetting residents and not respecting our needs is no way to make friends. I have parents who have carers 4 times a day. Their carers have no idea how they will get to their clients tomorrow.

    I am taking my parents out for the day and need to get from Hazel Grove to Sytch Lane then out of Village. Will this be possible?
