We have just trawled our archives. It looks as though the A41/Warwick Road plan – see detailed discussion in the next posting below this one – to be discussed on 6 August 09 will not be like this one which was resoundingly thrown out of Acocks Green in 2004, with a big meeting at St Mary’s Church and a 1,000 signature petition. (After that the successful ‘Save the Green Campaign’ morphed into ‘Acocks Green Focus Group). This 2004 plan has, note, a bus lane each side of The Warwick Road in Acocks Green and would have involved road widening. Hopefully, lessons have been learned and the new, 2009, plan will be a far more sensitive plan, which will respect the needs of Acocks Green. We will, however, remain vigilant until Thursday 6 July.
The ‘improvements on this part of the plan, though, were more to do with the 37 bus route on The Warwick Road. This whole scheme was resoundlingly rejected by Acocks Green in 2004.
NOTE: TO READ THIS PLAN COHERENTLY: left click on the plan itself until you have it full screen size and then use the on-screen arrows to move plan around for viewing. (At this size it is very clear.) Use top left green, on- screen, back arrow, not red ‘x’ buttons, to return to website.
