Frustrated motorists in Sandwell are holding their collective breaths to see if £12.7 million will be allocated to solve the disastrous on-going Birchley Island traffic fiasco that Yellow Cars passengers say they’re tired of.
Darren Thorpe, Yellow Cars Managing Director said, “enough is enough is what I hear our local customers say about the current situation. We’re awaiting a green light from the local Council who’ve been promising action on the matter. The reality is that work on the infamous island close to junction 2 of the M5 is well overdue.”
It’s been reported by local media in The Express and Star that we should soon see white smoke on dates for the project when funding is granted by the government. Half a billion pounds has been earmarked for such road improvement projects around the United Kingdom.
Mr. Thorpe added that, “it’s unbelievable when you consider what approximately 92,000 drivers are enduring each day. Imagine almost 100,000 drivers being put in this situation in 2016. Where’s the logic? It’s putting so much pressure on other roads in the district it’s not funny. Gridlock really isn’t the word for it.”
Finally, the Yellow Cars Managing Direction said, “it’ll be a new lease of life for passengers when our drivers can finally drive along the new road structure where Wolverhampton Road will extend through the roundabout where there’s hopefully soon going to be a two way traffic island with the much needed investment of close to £13 million. We’re counting down the days and so are our passengers in the community.”
The award winning Yellow Cars is honoured to celebrate 21 years in business the West Midlands in 2016. The Mayor of Walsall awarded a Yellow Cars driver for saving the life of an elderly passenger. Here at Yellow Cars we believe in the promise of safety and constant innovation. Just like when we invested in the purchase of state-of-the-art breathalysers which we distributed free of charge to pubs in the community as part of our 2016 road safety drive to keep you and your family safer.
