Respiratory problems far more likely in schools close to main roads
Work is now underway on the new housing scheme at Bell Green, consisting of 156 flats, two retail units with 164 bike spaces and 111 car parking spaces.
In the next few months, planning will start on a £1m scheme to improve the Bell Green Gyratory system with improvements for pedestrians, cyclists and traffic. The five sets of traffic lights around the gyratory will be improved and linked through SCOOT (Split Cycle Offset Optimisation Technique) – a system that responds automatically to fluctuations in traffic flow through the use of on-street detectors embedded in the road. It is expected that work on the new road scheme will be carried out in the financial year 2012-13.
