Steve McCabe MP welcomes road safety measures on Gibbins Road

Steve McCabe MP has welcomed news that traffic calming measures will be put in place to tackle speeding on Gibbins Road in Selly Oak.

Selly Oak local residents have been campaigning for the past few months to improve road safety on Gibbins Road. Following a meeting held by Steve McCabe MP and local Councillors in July, the Council have agreed to install a vehicle activated sign on Gibbins Road. Steve has welcomed the news and is pleased that the Council have taken the concerns of local residents seriously.

The vehicle activated sign will be installed on Gibbins Road once the school and University holidays are over when normal traffic conditions resumes. The Council have said that they intend to improve the road markings as you come off the roundabout so it is clear that Gibbins Road is not the A38.

Steve has asked the Council to go further and look at changing the timings of the traffic light control system at Chapel Lane and bringing resurfacing works forward, which are currently scheduled to be carried out in 4-5 years.

Steve McCabe MP said:

“It’s good that the Council have agreed to take steps to improve road safety on Gibbins Road as I know that many of my constituents have been frustrated that their views weren’t being listened to. This is a step in the right direction to address speeding and the volume of traffic on Gibbins Road and I will continue to push the Council to introduce further traffic calming measures.”
