We're delighted to announce that the following projects in Sandwell have been successful:
Millenium Community Centre and Friar Park Primary School
Two applications for the Better Streets Community Fund were submitted within close proximity of each other asking for improvements near the Millenium Community Centre and Friar Park Primary School. This project will provide improvements at and between these two locations providing a safe and enjoyable space for local people to walk and cycle.
Smethwick Old Church and Dorothy Parkes Community Centre
This project will aim to improve the public space outside of Smethwick Old Church and Dorothy Parkes Community Centre by reducing traffic speed and making it easier for people to walk and cycle in their local community.
The Better Street Community Fund will contribute to improving the accessibility of an existing crossing for cyclists and those with mobility issues by providing small amount of dropped kerb. The crossing in Blackheath forms a part of an existing cycle route between Blackheath and Rowley Regis Train Station and this small improvment will help improve this route.
West Bromwich Town Centre
This project will provide public cycle parking outside of the YMCA in West Bromwich Town Centre. Allowing people attending the YMCA and the wider town centre to be able to park their bikes securely.
