Ever since Amey the private contractor hired by the Birmingham City Council and paid from funding aranged by the prvevious government, re surfaced the carrige way in hawthrorn road there has been a flooding problem.
Many may know that following rain, crossing over the hawthorn Road via the pelican crossing which is situated near the Heron Supermarket can be a dodgy experience at the best of times. I have called on the City engineers to look at the lighting sequences for the junctions traffic lights and crossing.
Now however there is a good chance you can recieve a good soaking due to car, buses and so on driving past through large stretches of standing water laying accross the carriage way.
This is a real nuisance at times for those shopping and using the Hawthorn Road and I have asked Amey to look again at this part of the carriage way.
Amey have done some good work in the area such as Templeton Road but there is a number of other areas where they need to do better.
