Road Safety

Your Councillors have met recently with the City Councils’ Road Safety Officer and with West Midlands Police Sgt David Stanley.  The Officer agreed to two issues moving forward. Following site visits the road safety markings on Griffith Drive will be refreshed. The question of a review of the existing traffic calming to establish its efficacy is agreed overdue. However Road safety Officers cannot give a definitive time scale for such a review, due to the limited staff resources.  When the vacant posts are advertised and filled Road Safety  will be in a better position to give  a timescale.
