Lyn,thought our council was bad but the old saying is by the councillors it's not my money it's the Kitty's ,and we can spend it how we like and when it's gone we can borrow more and let the younger people pay we won't be here.By then it might be 2 an hour to park in the city.The mind boggles.

The only good thing I can see about the Commonwealth Games coming up is that there is a fixed deadline to get things done by  ;D  Surely, they'll have to have the tram extension done & all the roadworks & things like the Centenary Square & Museum refurbishment finished by then.   :P

Edmund in the late 70's a representative who worked at the same company as me , I'll always remember him saying this in the 40's/50's
Birmingham City council had the finest housekeeping record out of all the councils of the land , they were never in the red . My question is what went wrong ?

Well, the tram extension to Centenary Square has now completed & the trams are running.  The further extension up to Five Ways continues...

I guarantee as soon as Five Ways is finished there will be another section under construction . It will never be fully operational

hi judith...they have been saying will birmingham ever be finished for 100 years now...in my opinion no it never will...next on the councils list is to obliterate digbeth


re the commonwealth games....dont forget there is still the regeneration of perry barr to complete including the removal of the perry barr flyover and the building of the athletes village..neither of these has yet been started...they are still clearing the site where the college stood which is where the athletes village will be ...me thinks they had better get a move on...
