The concerned resident has highlighted the volume of traffic and speed at which the drivers are taking the Old Tamworth road, with many ‘flying’ over the bridge and ignoring the sign posts to the pitches. The resident has claimed to have been nearly knocked over several times.

Their post on FixMyStreet says:

On match days the volume of traffic going down Old Tamworth Road is horrendous and can be unsafe due to the speed the vehicles go at.They fly over the bridge to get to Anker Valley football pitches.There is a sign at the bridge directing them to go down Brindley Road to access the pitches but they do not.Some of them are even using mobile phones.I have nearly been knocked over a few times due to this.Their is also no footpath on oneside of the road so some residents exit the homes straight onto the road with oncoming traffic.
