Sandwell Liberal Democrats in Great Barr will be joining forces with their colleagues in Perry Barr this Saturday morning (February 9th), at the Scott Arms junction, to campaign over the plans to tear-down the A34 flyover in Perry Barr. (Photo courtesy of Birminghampost.co.uk)
This is likely to cause severe traffic problems for people using the Birmingham Road and Walsall Road, and roads off them.
These plans to replace the flyover seem to have been hastily brought forward to meet the timing of the Commonwealth Games in 2022, and there seems to have been little planning ahead to alleviate the traffic problems that will result from this.
We will also be running our own survey on how residents feel the facilities at the Scott Arms junction could be improved to make it a centre for the community again.
You can find an online version of our survey here: https://sandwelllibdems.typeform.com/to/JnTs57
Please come along and join if you want to make a difference!
