Andrew George replied to ARKrider's discussion Any Updates Cycle Lanes?
"I've not seen any evidence of work along Bristol Road either, at least on the sections nearer the Uni than the city centre. When they slightly adjusted the width of the advisory lanes along Bristol Road west of Selly Oak a couple of years back,…"

Andrew George replied to LS's discussion Edgbaston Tunnel Tow Path Widening
"That was my initial reaction to this, too. I pass through the tunnel regularly (on foot) and haven't seen any signs near the tunnel about this. It's only a couple of days ago that I found this would be happening, from this thread. I'm…"

Andrew George replied to Andrew W's discussion Front light recommendations
"I agree, Robert. I wish more people would get dipped/dip-able lights. My most recent trip down the towpath around dusk featured about 25 bikes that went the other way, all but four with blindingly bright lights. Each time I had to come to a halt…"

Andrew thanks for getting in touch.

Could you send me an email at owenrogers382@yahoo.co.uk and I will send you some questions. Does that sound OK?

Once I have your responses I will probably have enough, so I'll post that tomorrow sometime.

I really appreciate the help. he feature wold not be right without input from those it most directly effects.
