Agenda! Small Items – But They Are Important!


Wednesfield North -Here is a number of issues that I have been dealing with over the last few days. You may find them interesting –

  1. I have been receiving complaints about a bus shelter which is replacing a long standing box type bus shelter on Lichfield Road Wednesfield, just North of Peacock Avenue on the -To Wolverhampton side of the road. This new refurbished and replacement shelter replaced a fully covered bus shelter. I have written to Transport for  West Midlands  stating that “Your customers my constituents are very concerned because the shelter now in situation has an open front. It stands close to the kerb line.  The bus passengers are getting soaked when it rains as the lorries and cars now splash the water directly into those waiting for the bus.” I am hoping that TfWM will replace and find a shelter that the passengers feel safer and more comfortable waiting in.
  2. I have requested the Local Authority clear leaves from the Public Highway in Woodend Road Wednesfield.
  3. Woodend School will shortly be re-siting the rubbish bin that is attached to the inside of their fence on Wood End Road.  This bin is frequently used by dog walkers along Wood End Road to dispose of excrement.  The School have let the Council know that they will be removing this bin and requested that a rubbish bin is provided on the public footpath along Wood End Road.  They have asked for the City Councillors support. I have written a note to the Local Authority supporting the schools wish.
