Why no 'priority roads' for Birches Green? - ask Cllr Ann & Trevor Holtom


Cllr Ann Holtom (Lib Dem, Tyburn Ward) and Focus campaigner Trevor Holtom are appalled to learn that the Birches Green area of Erdington has missed out on the urgent road maintenance programme and are demanding to know why.

As reported on this website some time ago, Lib Dem run Birmingham City Council has signed a multi-million pound contract which will see every street in Birmingham repaired or renovated to bring them up to the same standard. Part of this agreement was that the roads in most need would be tackled first. But it seems that Birches Green has missed out despite having some very poor pavements and roads.

Cllr Holtom said: "I will be demanding answers from the highest authority on both the Highways Department and the contractors and I will be highlighting to them roads in Birches Green which need urgent attention."
