Austin meets council roads boss over safety fears and congestion concerns

Ian Austin is taking Dudley Council highways boss Councillor Hilary Bills to meet residents to discuss safety fears and congestion concerns.

At 11.00am this Thursday 4th August they willll discuss the problems caused with congestion at the junction of Parkes Hall Road and Sedgley Road where traffic queues for hundreds of yards during the morning and afternoon rush hours.

At 12.15 they’ll meet local campaigners Gordon Laird and Terry Ledbury to discuss the dangers posed by speeding traffic on the Birmingham New Road and the dangers of leaving the Foxyards estate at the junction with Woodcroft Avenue.

Ian Austin said:

“I’m really pleased Hilary has agreed to meet residents and look at these issues herself.

“Gordon Laird and Terry Ledbury have been campaigning for ages for measures to tackle speeding cars on the Birmingham New Road and make the junction at Woodcroft Avenue safer for people coming off and on to the Foxyards.

“Congestions causes huge tailbacks at Woodsetton in the mornings and afternoon rush hours. People have to queue for ages and I have been working with local councillors Adam Aston and Keiran Casey to press the council to sort it out.”
