Some history of Perry Barr

More information on Perry Barr to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Perry Barr from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Perry Barr. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"The Birchfleld Road [Perry Barr] underpass, which the Minister of Transport wants Birmingham Corporation to start this year, will mean the demolition of 120 shops, houses and cottages. The Corporation has made a compulsory purchase order to acquire the land necessary for the main Birchfield Road to be taken underneath the Outer Circle bus route, from Aston Lane into Wellington Road, Perry Barr. Forty shops and houses in Birchfield Road are included in the order, which has been sent to the Minister for confirmation, and there are other shops which will have to be demolished in Wellington Road. The Corporation plans to rehouse all the householders affected. Shopkeepers will be able to carry on their businesses in temporary shops bordering the three roads. Other properties involved are in Leslie Road, and it will also be necessary to take part of the forecourt and car park at the rear of an adjoining public-house. Taking the main road underground at Perry Barr will cost, it is estimated, about £300,000. It will be one of two underpass schemes planned for Birchfield Road. The other, already approved in principle by the Minister of Transport, is at Six Ways, Aston. At the two underpass points, local traffic will be able to branch off from the main road by taking a "slipway" leading to an island. Main road traffic will go underneath the island. The houses and shops included in the compulsory purchase order must be demolished to make way for the construction of the "slipways" and the island. The Minister has included the Perry Barr underpass in the 1959-60 major road building programme."
