A spokesman for Birmingham City Council said: 'The council is in a position to lead the way forward and set an example. It is generally accepted that we can not build new roads, so the transportation department is looking to develop others. Through TravelWise we are looking to reduce traffic congestion and improve the environment by supplying advise and help on alternatives.'
