We’re proud of our cast iron (and replica cast iron as well) road signs in Edgbaston. Where we have them, which is usually in Conservation areas, we don’t want to lose them.
So I am pleased to report that the Harborne Road one, which you may have noticed was missing, has not been stolen (as some have been in the past) but in fact broke and was taken in by a community minded resident after he reported the breakage to me.
It has now been collected from the resident, and Amey (the Council’s contractor) confirm it can be repaired and the work will be done over the next couple of weeks. Good news for the street scene in Edgbaston!
