A number of residents asked me to present a petition (the second one in 2 years) calling upon the Birmingham City Councils Transportation department to introduce traffic calming measures on the Aldridge Road between the Boars Head and the Metropolitan college including traffic lights at the Greenholm Road junction.
Most people in the area will know following previous campaigning by councillors of all parties and local residents slow down signs were erected near the Greenholm Road junction, but in my view it is time the Council bit the bullet spent some money on traffic lights and some speed indicator signs. Their constant refusal to spend money on appropriate road safety measures in the Oscott area is very worrying. I am now hoping with a new man in charge of the Transportation department things may start to happen.
