Frederick Road <-> Selly Oak Park

Gibbins Road is busy with fast-moving traffic, as despite being a residential road it is used as a rat-run by motorists on the A38 trying to avoid the Selly Oak Triangle junction (this has been facilitated by the junction design). As a result there is a significant problem with speeding on this road.
Firstly this rat-run should be closed. If this were done, the following might not be necessary. Selly Oak park needs to be linked with Frederick Road to create a cycle route. This could be partly built using some existing footway, the service road, and a short section of cycle path to link with the pinch-point crossing. This last feature should be widened to be large enough for a bike, and the road belled around it to create a chicane on both sides (to slow motorists).
