Weather is getting better now in that no further snow forecast. Been out and the roads are passable on the estate but not great. Take care out there and especially tonight with temperatures predicted to be -5C.
Walsall Council finally got back about the gritting and pointed me towards THIS SITE run by volunteers. Go to Pheasey and note the high priority roads are Beacon Road, Collingwood Drive and Queslett Road.
I have received nothing back from the councillors as of this moment and I have to say where Hillingford Road, Romney Road and Wimperis Way are not high priority given the steepness of the hills is rather bemusing.
These roads are medium priority and they were certainly not down this morning when I went out. Also Collingwood is of the highest priority, that hardly looked gritted at all. It seems however side roads in Aldridge were done today, why is Pheasey left out ?
The answer to that may be self evident to many of us who live here.
From what I have heard all the schools will be open tomorrow which is good news.
Buses also appear to back to normal with the 997 and 5 running a normal service through the estate.
As for the Bin Collection the details can be found HERE for tomorrow’s collections. I would say a lot of us will be missed out.
Also would it not be a good idea for Walsall to copy Sandwell and get Snow Champions sorted. I cleared most of where I live but would be great if people did it around the area.
EDIT – 14.24
Barr Beacon School @barrbeaconsch
Due to continuing snowfall, school will be closed to students and staff tomorrow (Tuesday 22nd January) except for those taking exams.
I am surprised at this news as it is not too bad out there and teachers would be able to get in
