Overnight the Council Workers Poured the Tarmac to Fill the Holes
Returning to my home in Sheepcote Street at around 11pm last night (Saturday) I was thwarted by a traffic jam starting in Friston Avenue off Ladywood Middleway and leading to Rushton Street and then Grosvenor Street West.
I sited much activity in Grosvenor Street West by road workers .
This traffic jam failed to move so I drove around neighbouring streets and found that Grosevenor Street West was closed with physical barricades.
I eventually managed to find a way through and reached Sheepcote Street.
Now this afternoon i found that most of the pot holes had been filled by laying new sections of tarmac. Yay!
The sections are shown below:

Some potholes still remain as below and are likely to cause damage if not avoided.
