The following is a letter sent to the Birmingham Mail by RW Meese which he has asked to share with us here – leave your thoughts in the comments section below!
having heard all the complaints about northfield,i thought i would see what the problem was,and i have to say that they are all justified.
all the paving is loose and sticking up a trip hazzard (council be ware) as i was walking down the street various slabs being repaired or replaced,
then there is the issue of traffic flow on the high street ,cars double parked and certain shops putting barricades out to stop you parking because they are having a delivery,postal workers taking the spaces up when collecting/sorting there delivery rounds clearly staying over the stated time,
also you have the motorists nightmare of the double traffic light junction at great stone road junction and the sainsburys junction no thought as gone in to this at all, the yellow boxes on the road are a joke nobody adheres to them (needs proper policing),right turns need to be blocked off or they should of spent the money on an
island a big one ,
then there is the problem with the buses coming along 3/4 at a time tailin back in to the junction and in to the yellow box
i ask the question why do bus stops have to be so close to the corners or junctions.
and lastly the bypass itself i always thought that the purpose was to get the traffic flowing from piont a to piont b yet on this little stretch of bypass we have 5 sets of traffic lights .
so as a tax payer my money as not been spent well.
