Don't demolish the flyover!

Jon raised the alarm in June about proposals to demolish the Perry Barr flyover being considered as part of the work around the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

This would see a huge traffic light junction created at Perry Barr. Planners seem to think this is the simplest thing to do so solve the problems in this area. The problem is the work will cause huge traffic congestion and then afterwards all cars will queue in multiple lanes outside the new Perry Barr station. So then we would need another Clean Air Zone.

It would also cause huge upset just when good work is being done to build the athletes' village and rebuild the station.

So far more than 1,000 people have signed an on-line petition to keep the flyover. You can find it here:
