Property owners who think they could be blighted by High Speed 2 are being urged to assume the worst and file their compensation plans now, even though the public enquiry is still underway and final route will not be finalised until later this year.
(Updated 5th September with images from the parade) Coventry’s massive `Festival of Motoring’ will see a parade of hundreds of cars through Balsall Common, Berkswell and Meriden on Sunday Morning 5th September from 10.30am.
Caroline Spelman writes about the withdrawal of the no 82 bus between Meriden, Berkswell and Balsall Common:
“When the no. 82 bus service between Meriden, Berkswell and Balsall Common was withdrawn in late July, passengers were left standing (literally) by the redundant bus stops. Central Connect , which took over the service, rescheduled the route to run between Solihull and Coventry , but there is no bus between Balsall and Meriden and this leaves residents in Berkswell marooned with no public transport.
