The Perry Barr Flyover is closed from today as Birmingham City Council begin major works to demolish it.
I’ve been vocal in my opposition to these plans and I still believe this is the wrong course of action (as do many of my constituents). I have raised this with the Leader of Birmingham City Council directly, written to residents in Great Barr (who will be disproportionately affected by these works) and campaigned against the demolition with fellow MPs, but the Council are pressing ahead regardless.
To help minimise disruption to constituents’ lives, I will continue to post updates about the roadworks on my social media pages and website to help people plan their journeys.
