One thought on “Junction of Creynolds Lane and Vicarage Road”

  1. As I understand it, this work consists of a few new signs, and a change of priority for Vicarage Road/Creynolds Lane from ‘Give Way’ to ‘Stop’. Do Solihull MBC seriously believe that this will make a ha’porth of difference to how this junction is used?? The majority of drivers who come down either of those roads are aware of the dangers, and tend to hesitate before crossing anyway, and accidents still happen!! We were promised a ‘table top’ would be installed prior to Cheswick Place being developed, but this turns out to be advisory rather than compulsory, so it would appear now that it was never going to be done! Given the thousands of pounds that are rightly being spent on traffic calming measures in Illshaw Heath at the moment, using S106 money from IM Properties, I would have thought that some of the Bloors S106 money could have been used for this junction? A table top is the only way to slow down those selfish idiots that seem to like using the lanes around here as a F1 race track or a rallycross course!! (By the way, John Bloor was recently named as the richest house builder in the UK………… just sayin’!!!)
