Participation 2019

Car-free day Car-free day

Birmingham carries out a Car-Free Day 2019 and closes off one or more streets to traffic, and opens it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.

Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
A section of the iconic A38 Aston Expressway is to be converted into a paved park for Car Free Day.

The initiative, which is a collaboration between Birmingham City Council, The Active Wellbeing Society and the Sport England-funded Active Communities Local Delivery Pilot Programme, will offer people the opportunity to come and enjoy approximately a mile of the road completely car-free for the first time ever.

The day will run from 10am to 4pm and include fun activities and opportunities to play games, walk and cycle – or simply just soak up the atmosphere.
