An impressive turnout for this event, forming part of the consultation process Sustrans preparing and now presenting their designs for Kings Heath High Street to Birmingham City Council.
A longer clip below, discussion in full. I felt discussion moved at times from issues of safety for the most vulnerable High Street users (old and young) to graffiti, parking and seating - important issues, yes, but whatever the design has to deliver, it has to make things safer, and I think that has to be a priority. To make things safer the design is only a small part - There's still loads to do to make sure improvements proposed happen, and more action to make all our roads safer.
