Today Sky Ride took place in Edgbaston – a chance for everyone to cycle on roads which are (for a few hours) completely free of other traffic.
This is one of those events where the needs of local people and the whole city have to be carefully balanced. So it was good that we had a council officer at the last meeting of the Edgbaston Ward Committee (held at St Mary & St Ambrose Church Hall which is on the Sky Ride route) to take on board residents’ concerns.
As a result, he was able to arrange for residents in cul de sacs off the Pershore Road, such as Aboyne Close, to be able to enter and exit the area using Speedwell Road. A good result for everyone!
