We’ve received some good news via Weoley ward councillors. Birmingham City Council have agreed to install a traffic lights system at the junction of Shenley Lane, Gregory Avenue and Long Nuke Road.
The junction has seen many accidents over the years and a 36 year old woman sadly lost her life in a collision there this month.
Residents and councillors have long appealed for a safer system of traffic control at the junction.
In a letter to local residents, the Weoley ward councillors said that work on traffic lights was due to start in the next few weeks and should take around ten weeks to complete.
In a joint statement, Weoley ward councillors Adrian Delaney, Peter Douglas Osborn and Eddie Freeman said: “After many years of campaigning for lights at the Shenley Lane crossing, we have finally had a break through and got the outcome we have all fought for, with the crossing going ahead. Its fantastic news and we are thankful for the support from local residents. We are really pleased.”
