Shell Corner roundabout for summer spruce up
A Halesowen roundabout is set to get a £60k makeover, after councillors and community groups worked together to plan improvements.
Shell Corner on Long Lane is expected to have the works this autumn. It is funded through community infrastructure levy payments, with money coming from developers working in the area.
Improvements to the roundabout will see replacement of tarmac with more appealing clay brick paving to compliment other public realm improvements that have recently been made around Shell Corner.
Councillor Simon Phipps, cabinet member for regeneration and enterprise, said:
We are continuing to invest in our local centres and towns, and we are pleased to have secured the fund to make these improvements at Shell Corner later this year.
I'd like to pay tribute to the work of everyone involved with Shell Corner Partnership, consisting of the Halesowen North Councillors and key community representatives, who have helped develop these plans.
I’m sure the works will help to make the roundabout more attractive for those living and working in the area.
