A number of residents have raised concerns, especially over traffic queues and access for emergency vehicles.
Carole writes: “Longbridge Residents have been suffering for too long from the results of changing the traffic system in Longbridge Lane. Show how strongly you feel by signing the petition. Thank you, Carole Griffiths”

We, the undersigned, request that Birmingham City Council highways department reassesses the narrowing of Longbridge Lane to one lane by Longbridge train station.
Since the road was narrowed from two lanes to one, in each direction, we feel that the traffic flow has been hindered, causing severe delays at peak times.
We are also concerned that emergency vehicles struggle to get through queuing traffic.
We are worried that the problems associated with the narrowing will only worsen as Longbridge town centre is further developed.
PETITION NOW CLOSED
1121 signatures collected. Thanks to all who signed.
To be presented to Birmingham full council meeting Tuesday 1/12/15
