Park Circus, Aston - A38(M). I'm parked not far from the grammar school. The blue sign warns of the central lane control ahead.

A4040 Outer Circle passing under the M6 in Witton. Chances of this ever being a dual carriageway: nil.

A34 Scott Arms. The road going across is of course the A4041, but maybe Sandwell Council have forgotten that this sign is in their area.

A45 Sheldon - Coppermine - 10490.jpg
A45 Sheldon

A mid 90's view of the overhead traffic lights looking towards Coventry. Not a lot has changed except for the buses which are now Travel West Midlands instead of West Midlands Travel. On the left are a couple of old Fords, a Mk3 Escort and a Sierra estate which is in pretty good nick but then Sierras would only have just stopped being made. This view also shows there is enough room to GSJ this junction with a diamond interchange but the chances of the city council funding such a scheme are nil.

The distinctive overhead traffic lights are a landmark of this juncton. This picture was taken in the mid 90's and although the streetlamp columns have been replaced they are still fitted with MA lanterns. The signs on the gantries have also been renewed but the biggest change must be the cars, even by 90's standards the W reg car which looks like a Nissan/Datsun and the Mk2 Cavalier were old nails.

Has that old Fiesta on the left just gone through a red light?

'I wonder if you could help me - I'm looking for the Jewellery Quarter.' A4540 Icknield Street, junction with Warstone Lane. That is indeed the Birmingham Mint on the right.

Cape Hill, Smethwick: the old A457. Even today this a rotten junction, with some of the longest traffic lights I know.
