Conference Updates II 

Saturday, October 30, 2004

Simon Talbot-Ponsonby is the latest speaker to confim for the conference.
He will be coming to talk about Sustrans "Safe Routes To Stations", which is coincidental in that Wolverhampton Station is all due for a remodelling.
The proposed Transport Interchange promises great things, but unfortunately Wolverhampton City Council don't seem to want to let anyone else know or let them get involved!


 

 

Conference Updates 

Saturday, October 30, 2004

There have been a few enquiries about where the conference is to be held.
The venue is:
The Light House
The Chubb Buildings,
Fryer Street ,
Wolverhampton, 
WV1 1HT

Location of the Light House

The Light House is situated within the Chubb Buildings, approx 1 minutes walk from the Train station!
If arriving by train, you leave the Station by the only exit and walk to the Very Large Red brick building past the Pub on the right hand side of the road over the bridge.
Follow the road around the bend to the right and the main entrance is recessed back a little, near to the junction with Broad Street.
Cycle parking is inside the building.
Please come into the reception and register.

-------------------------------------------------------

The social ride venue on Friday 12th is the Newhampton Inn, we have the Pavillion booked for the evening, 
Location is junction of Riches Street & Sweetman Street in Whitmore Reans.
This isn't a usual venue for WolvesonWheels, but is a very special pub, with great beer, one of the best atmospheres anywhere and is virtually home to one or two of our members!


Review of the Newhampton

Location of Newhampton
There is plenty of space to leave bikes there, use the side entrance and take them through to the bowling green pavillion, unless your machine is large, such as tandems, trikes etc and we'll put them in the side gate.

If you are arriving by train with a bike for the Friday evening then we can meet you and guide you there, it's approx 2 km, downhill from Wolverhampton Station.
If you're not bringing a bike then catch the 501 bus from the bus station (next to railway station) and ask for St Judes Church/girls High School, cross the pedestrian crossing when you disembark, and walk down the side road, St Judes road, past the church, turn left at the end and the pub should be in front of you.


Some Things Never Change 

Saturday, October 30, 2004

From Express And Star Archives.

Only 25 years ago but the council still "views the suggestions with sympathy!"


We get raw deal, claims cyclist
Originally published:

Wolverhampton cyclists are getting a raw deal from town planners, it has been claimed.

Roger Malpass, managing director of animal feed merchants JN Miller, cycles from his home to work every day.

Now he has sent a letter to the town council saying that he is 'deeply concerned' about traffic problems at Wightwick and Perton, and on roads leading into Wolverhampton.

"The pressure on our road services is intense and the standard of driving is equally dismal," he claims.

"The safety of us all is at stake, and, as a cyclist, I find myself facing risks which are quite unnecessary."

In the letter he outlines a four-point plan including road changes, traffic lights and new one-way systems.

A council spokesman said officials viewed the suggestions with sympathy.
