Crossing success on Farnborough Road

Pedestrian crossing

Following a recent fatal accident, a petition for a pedestrian crossing on Farnborough Road, Erdington was raised by concerned local residents. As previously reported on this site, Cllr Ann Holtom asked the Birmingham City Council Cabinet member with responsibility for traffic to intervene in the aftermath of this tragedy. The residents' petition was signed by Ann Holtom as well as by hundreds of local people and has resulted in Birmingham Council deciding to install a zebra crossing.

The new zebra crossing will be installed outside the swimming baths on Farnborough Road as soon as possible.
