Car parked on the pavement each day, no access for wheelchair users and blocking visibility of drive ways, 18th December

Mon, 18 Dec 2023 09:13:46 +0000
52.357311 -2.046121

Each day a car parks up on the pavement. There are two problems. The car is clearly blocking access for mobility scooters, these leaves people on scooters to have to go onto a very busy road (A38) to go around it. It is also blocking visibility of driveways trying to exit again onto a very busy road which has led to several near misses. The car turns up every day at 6am and the driver is picked up. He then gets dropped back around 4pm. Itís been happening for several weeks and I have left a note for the driver, politely asking him to move. He has ignored this request. Please help before a serious incident occurs. Itís just a matter of time

Traffic Light Sequence Causing Long Delays, 26th July

Wed, 26 Jul 2023 10:06:39 +0100
52.378875 -2.047147

The timing of the traffic lights at Lydiate Ash from the A491 is causing a 2 mile queue at busy times. The lights stay green for just 5 seconds. When the additional ongoing roadworks are in progress there are further delays at the lights with two lanes being coned off.

Sequence is dangerous, 16th May

Tue, 16 May 2023 16:19:22 +0100
52.378975 -2.045744

Customer reported this issue to Worcestershire County Council, WCC reporting to National Highways: what have you done to the timing sequence. The new sequence when exiting the M5 south bound is dangerous and is going to result in a major accident. The lights change to allow exit off the motorway but the lights on the A38 towards Bromsgrove stay on red and do not allow traffic to move before the lights on your right change to green resulting in partial blockage, Then the next change of lights exiting the motorway only stay on green long enough to allow 2 cars to get through. This never used to be the case it's only since recent road works and all the traffic lights on the island where out.

Traffic light sequencing, 2nd May

Tue, 02 May 2023 09:16:41 +0100
52.378519 -2.045299

The traffic light sequencing on the m5 jct 4 roundabout seems to have been changed recently causing huge amounts of traffic. Lights on the roundabout aren't letting enough vehicles through and round the roundabout at once, meaning queues block lanes - this is 100x worse when lorries are involved as they take up more room. Queues then build up on all approaches as a result. This wasn't a problem up until a few weeks ago.

This idiot parked on the double yellow line on Old Birmingham Road at the junction of Cottage Lane. His trailer was over-hanging the junction and made it impossible for anyone to safely pull out of Cottage Lane. Given the areaís popularity with cyclists and motorcyclists, this sort of thoughtless, inconsiderate parking could be fatal. It is a persistent problem yet nothing is ever done about it.
