Oracle Observations

Birmingham roadworks from the north. #Ukoug_tech15

This evening, with four days to go, I popped up and down the aston expressway, which I presume most attendees to the conference by car will use to see what a mess the council are making.

I was pleasently surprised, while there were meny cones, they were in the side of the road and not yet in use.

So I continued to paradise circus to see the impact of it’s ‘closure’.

Essentially paradise circus is no longer a roundabout and there is no longer any direct access to broad St.

So if you come down the aston expressway and take the road over the roundabout, then through the first tunnel and then avoid the second tunnel, you will be brought round an sent south and end up exactly the same place as if you’d taken the second tunnel.

To access broad St from here you need to go round the pagoda roundabout (after dark the radison blu may be more visible), back in the direction you just came from and then take the left turn down Holiday St. which runs parrellel to Broad St and will be behind the majority of the hotels that most attendees will be staying in.

I honestly don’t see any issues for attendees arriving on Sunday. However, anyone attempting this route on Monday morning should anticipate additional delays.
