Some good news for those of use who use the 997 bus to get to town ( Birmingham) and back. After a numberr of attempts Amey Highways are to fill in some pot holes on the Aldridge Road between Well head Lane and the Boars Head. Lets hope when they have done it we can have a more comfortable ride. Those who use the route will know what I mean.
