I do know I will get a bit of stick from some friends about another obstruction in the way of vehicles but they will understand the rationale of my request for a crossing facility to be situated at the top of Monkspath Hall Road, near to the Fieldhouse Pub. This has nothing to do with me going to the pub on Monday evenings either I might add!
Seriously, I have been a governor at Monkspath Junior and Infant School for some 23 years and we have been asking for either a pathway down Monkspath Hall Road (to save children from actually crossing the highway) or some sort of crossing facility. There are some 90+ children who live in the Hillfields area and attend Monkspath J&I School, with some having to cross both Widney Lane and Monkspath Hall Road at ver busy times of the day. It appears a pathway has been ruled out – basically not enough space on the grassed area near the top of Monkspath Hall Rd. So, we are left with just one option – a Toucan Crossing.
I have attached a document and plan of the proposals and please respond to the consultation if you have a view. I doubt there is a school in Solihull where as many children are expected to cross such big roads.
