Many people in Moseley have always believed that the Council hates us and many ways it is probably true. Yesterdays announcement by the Highways Department that at last the A449 was going to be re-routed through the centre of Moseley brought a general whoop of joy.
Although Moseley residents have been happy with the service that the A435 has provided through the centre of the Village it has caused quite a degree of concern that the road simply doesn’t match the local telephone code. This simple act by the Highways Department will not only aid the more forgetful Moseley residents but it will undoubtedly attract a great deal of tourism to the area. Particularly those tourists with a keen interest in local area codes.
It isn’t all good news though with certain residents of Wolverhampton complaining that the gesture will in mean that the entire city has to move half a mile east of its present location just to please some pampered middle class brummies. On the other hand the people of Kidderminster are quite pleased because they apparently don’t really like it where they are at the moment.
Eye on Moseley applauds this foresight and the balance it will no doubt bring.
