This has been discussed for years. Acocks Green Residents and those who work in Acocks Green tend to have strong opinions on this. There is little love for Dudley Park Road bus lane. This is not because Acocks Green people don’t like buses. The bus lane has long been associated with danger and delay. Plans have been drawn up for its removal as one of the ‘Quick Win’ initiatives associated with the Warwick Road/A41 improvements which are under serious discussion at present – see recent postings.
The plan is available for downloading, viewing and/or printing here
The letter accompanying the plan is here
The opinion sheet, which can be downloaded and returned, is here
The Focus Group had some initial concerns about how the removal would fit into the overall plans and whether work would need to be, expensively, re-done later. We reproduce the information here, for the sake of local democracy. Having now been able to review these documents we cannot see that this plan is likely to cause any serious concerns although we would be interested to receive comments.
