Change to Moor Street car park egress
From 5 October 2016, cars exiting Moor Street car park, in the city centre, will not be able to proceed straight on to Moor Street, but will be channelled left onto Park Street and directed to exit the city through Digbeth. The new arrangement is intended to address congestion issues affecting bus services around Moor Street Queensway and will initially be trialled for four weeks.
