Passengers Polled Over Sandwell Bus Changes

Bus passengers in Blackheath, Oldbury and Sandwell are being consulted about proposed wide-ranging changes to services.

National Express wants to change the 48, 80, 83, 89 and 120 routes in April and have launched a consultation with passengers.

The new changes are being made to include routes to the new Midlands Metropolitan Hospital in Smethwick and counter upcoming roadworks. Changes to the 89 Birmingham to Blackheath route include linking people to West Bromwich rather than Oldbury, 

And between Oldbury and Blackheath, the new route 120A will replace the 89 at a higher 20 minute frequency.

The new plans can be viewed online at the National Express website and feedback is being encouraged via e-mail to
