Travelling from M42 J6 / M6 / A45 - there are 2 possible routes.

Approaching from either of the main roads listed above, drivers will inevitably choose to head towards Balsall Common on the A452 from Stonebridge Island.

There are only really two routes both of which pass through Balsall Common. The shortest and quickest route will see drivers turn into Gipsy Lane and head down Holly Lane, across into Brees Lane and then to the new island. Keeping to the main roads would take you out of Balsall Common on the A452, towards Gambles Corner, onto the A4177, past the Tipperary pub and turn right into Honiley Road.

The shortest / quickest route via Holly Lane is a mile shorter than, what we're sure will be, Fulcrum / Prodrive's "preferred" route.

1.  Shortest route 6.4 miles.

Via Gipsy Lane (Heart of England School), Holly Lane and Brees Lane.

2.  Main Roads route 7.4 miles.

Via A452 / A4177
