A NEW sign has been put up in Rubery to let visitors know they are entering the village.
The sign, aimed at those leaving the A38 via Whetty Lane, has been installed after campaigning by Coun Peter McDonald.
He said while other areas in the district had up to three signs reminding visitors where they were, Rubery had been without at least two.
“It has taken some time to get the county council to agree on implementing the sign as it was not seen as a priority in this time of endless cutbacks.
“So I am pleased that Rubery is now on the map and will campaign for another sign to be erected on the junction opposite.
“Rubery is the gateway to the Waseley and Lickey Hills and for far too long has not been given that recognition.”
Coun John Smith, Worcastershire’s Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Highways, said: “We are very pleased Rubery is now properly signposted on the A38, and that motorists travelling from Birmingham will know when they enter Worcestershire.”
