At the end of last week, the Perry Barr Flyover permanently closed as Birmingham City Council took steps towards its demolition.

I believe that this is a retrograde step and it is one that will impact on my constituents across Aldridge-Brownhills, including Streetly. I have campaigned alongside my colleagues in the Black Country to stop the demolition as we believe it is the wrong course of action. however despite our best efforts Birmingham City Council have pressed on regardless.

There is no doubt that the current demolition works will cause disruption to a large number of my constituents and I will continue to update you with regards to progress to help assist you all.
