Several local residents have been in contact with James and local councillors Joe Roberts and Karen Shakespeare regarding road safety on Narrow Lane.
In the local elections this year a main theme of Joe, Karen and James' Plan for Halesowen North was to improve road safety for pedestrians and motorists. That’s why they have launched this petition for local residents to sign.
For a number of years there has been a lot of growing concern about Narrow Lane, particularly the bend which has seen a number of accidents.
Recent proposals for a Safer Routes to School scheme around Hurst Green Primary will go some way in making the road safer, but we believe that much more can be done to make the road safer. That is why we are doing this petition to help make Halesowen North an even safer place to live, work and raise a family.
The petition will be presented to a future council meeting and Joe, James and Karen will keep residents updated on any response and proposals.
