Members will be pleased to know that the infamous Brampton Valley Way (BVW) mud-hole is no more! Did I hear cheering? The mud has gone under the railway bridge and a two-level concrete cycle/pedestrian path rolled through. It looks as though the engineers have conceded that it will always flood under there but during dry times there is a big wide solid path through but then during the times it’s flooded there’s a higher-level but narrower concrete path above flood level which is walkable pushing a bike. (It will be possible to ride through on that but the ‘roof level’ is lower.)
They have also put down a black-top surface linking the underpass back to the farm track at the back of the Kings Heath sports field.
Notices say the BVW is closed from the underpass back to the Windhover pub for ten weeks from 10th January to effect path repairs.
So hopefully that should solve the problem.
