• Improve traffic flow and reduce congestion on the main A4100/A4034 through the town (from Cradley Heath and Old Hill, through Blackheath towards the link to the M5 at Junction 2) with consideration for a “Red Route”.
• Act on the “Safer Streets” report for Rowley Regis commissioned by the local authority in 2016. To date, no actions have been completed. In summary this recommended a 20mph speed limit on Moor Lane together with build-outs/traffic calming and white-line demarcations for pedestrians as there is no footpath for walkers.
• Perform comprehensive litter collection on streets and open spaces around the town. Some locations are also subject to frequent fly-tipping (e.g. Moor Lane as mentioned above)
• Completion of a ring road around Blackheath town centre and the creation of a bus station (instead of the several bus stopping locations). This could expand on the “Blackheath Traffic Consultation” done in 2013, but never acted on.
