St Marys Row pavement, Moseley, to be slabbed in mid-March

A large section of St Marys Row and tiny section of Alcester Road in Moseley shopping centre will be reconstructed and slabbed starting in the middle of March. The section is presently made of bitumen and will be slabbed using similar pale yellow slabs that are used in the rest of the shopping centre.

The sections that will be slabbed are on the southside of St Marys Row, immediately in front of the shops. Starting at the Oxford Road junction, the slabbing will go all the way down to the Junction pub, round the corner, in front of Domestica electrical shop and end at the number 50 bus stop in front of Kingsfisher fish and chip shop.

This section of paving is the number one pavement in the Ward that I get most residents complaints about. This section is full of potholes or indentations that form large puddles whenever it rains.

If you look at the pavement in front of the entrance to the Junction pub, you can see the old kerbline in the middle of the pavement that show the original width of pavement before it was widened in the early 1990s.

I attach photos showing the section to be slabbed.

Can more bike racks be installed while this resurfacing is taking place?

It's quite a shame that when the council is paid an excess budget for road maintainence that this gets spent to the advantage of private properties when there are public places like this are clearly in more need on an investment.
