Solihull Council is proposing a humped road crossing between Knowle (Jobs Close) Park and Nos. 89 and 93 Lodge Road. This will be combined with a narrowing of the road on the Scout Hut side. An SMBC survey form dated 26th May addressed to ‘Residents of Lodge Road’ is to be returned by 5th June.
The path from St Johns Close past the Scout Hut joins Lodge Road between Nos 89 and 93 Lodge Road. The crossing would be immediately opposite that path. The entrance to the park is just a few yards (‘metres’ to the imperially challenged) from the proposed crossing.
Many residents when questioned about the proposals for the Safe Routes To School project have highlighted addressing the crossing of Lodge Road as being of real priority and value compared with the SRTS project.
