B3800 - Chapel Lane, Selly Oak

Post by Chris Bertram » Tue May 04, 2021 10:46

I'm considering adding this to the Wiki - it's brand new (the number, not the actual road), and has been created as part of the Selly Oak Triangle works. I just need to know from anyone who's driven it recently, is it two-way in both directions, and is it limited access from the Harborne Lane end?

B3800??? In Birmingham?

Oh, for heaven's sake. Is Birmingham City Council really that completely clueless? Mind you, the B38 should have answered that question...

It's all part of the same scheme, so the same numbering "expert" is clearly at work.

Anyway, B3800

From the SABRE Wiki: B3800 :


The B3800 is very short link road in Birmingham, cutting a corner between Harborne Lane and Bristol Road by using Chapel Lane.

It was created in 2021 as part of the Selly Oak Triangle works. With A38 being diverted away from Selly Oak centre along the new Aston Webb Boulevard and taking over part of A4040 along Harborne Lane, including dualling this section up to the Great Oak junction, this left Chapel Lane, which had formerly taken A4040

Had I been involved with some of the work, it was all a done deal before I started my current job, I'd have made sure that such nonsense never happened. Alas.

Well I feel like a right idiot now. I drove this a couple of weeks ago and it's definitely two-way along Chapel Lane. However, having been concentrating so hard on the new signage I didn't fully notice the access from Harborne Lane. I believe it is limited ie you can't turn right into Chapel Lane from Harborne Lane northbound. I will confirm this in a few weeks unless someone beats me to it.

I've been looking all over the site for a guide on how to create a trace, but either there isn't one (unlikely) or I'm looking in the wrong places. Can someone point me in the right direction?

From the SABRE Wiki: SABRE Maps/Tracing :

As well as viewing maps, SABRE Maps provides route traces of most British and Irish roads. These come from contemporary OpenStreetMap mapping, but only for current roads. For historical or defunct roads, we need to roll up our sleeves and create them ourselves. This where the ability to trace an existing map comes in.

Please note the trace functionality is fairly new, and further usability enhancements are planned.

Thank you, I knew there had to be something.
