Roads across New Invention and Short Heath are beginning to show the ravages of winter and Walsall Council needs to act now or pay the price “Cannock Road on the approach to the “Amery” island is a point in case” said Willenhall North Lib Dem Campaigner Carol Fletcher.
“But it doesn’t stop there” added Willenhall North’s Liberal Democrat Councillor Ian Shires. “A recent survey that Carol and I carried out on main routes through our area has shown not only the serious effects of winter but also long term diversions in Essington and Bloxwich which has forced many more HGVs onto our already congested road network”.
Signs of this can be seen all along the A462 from the top end of the Essington Road into Cannock Road through to High Road Lane Head and Sandbeds Road. Similar issues occur along the link into Willenhall town centre along Coppice Lane and Lucknow Road.
Carol and Ian have sent the findings of their survey to Walsall Council demanding that action be taken sooner rather than later to avoid a heavy drain on public funds at a time when every penny counts.6 Comments
