Plans to ease congestion on one of the Black Country’s busiest routes by building a ‘hamburger’ island have been welcomed. The Birchley Island in Oldbury is next to junction two of the M5 and is used by more than 92,000 motorists a day. The section of road has long been a known chokepoint in the region which has caused many delays to local companies. Sandwell Council’s initial proposals for a £13 million road improvement would see a road driven directly through the roundabout to ease congestion, making it a ‘hamburger’ island. David Manners, managing director of David Manners group, has been selling British car parts from his multi-million business on the Birchley Island for the last 23 years. He said: “There has been a lot of dreadful accidents on this stretch of road and during the morning and evening rush hour the highways are completely congested.” He added: “I’m for any kind of infrastructure improvements that will help bring jobs and new business to the Black Country. It’s what we need to help the UK’s recovery. “I don’t mind what they decide to do as long as it helps ease congestion at the island.” It was recently revealed in a report that Sandwell Council were also considering removing the island to make way for a managed junction similar to that already in operation up the road on the former site of the Burn Tree Island. Martyn Richardson, Managing Director of developers the Richardson group has been behind some of the largest projects in the region including the Merry Hill shopping centre, and has his headquarters based on the island. He said: “Anything that improves the situation is welcomed by us and as long they consult local businesses it won’t be a problem. I’m all for new infrastructure improvements and this island has a congestion problem that affects businesses.” He said recent improvements that include new trees and a sign had improved the look of the island, which is seen as the gateway to the region, but added it would be a shame to see all the money spent go to waste. The work is expected to take two years, although funding is still yet to be secured despite a request for money from Black Country Strategic Transport.

Red Jaguar XF at the David Manners Group

It’s great to see so many Jaguar XF Cars at the David Manners Group this year. Back in September we featured a metallic silver Jaguar XF which simply was stunning. The silver colour was so electric and most of us at DMG were of the opinion there would be no comparisons. This was until we saw this delightful Jaguar XF in metallic red.

The David Manners Group feature in this week’s Classic Car Buyer for their excellent article on buying a Morris Minor, the costs and what to look out for. We have certainly noticed a rapid increase of our younger customers buying a Morris Minor as their foray into the Classic Car market, or indeed as their first car due to the low running costs and how accessible the car is to maintain. The Morris Minor Owners Club who we support every year has to be applauded for their contribution bringing

Our Customers make October month to Remember

We have been extremely busy at the David Manners Group this last couple of weeks. On the 13th October, we attended the Jaguar show at Stoneleigh which was fantastically busy. Yesterday we were back at Stoneleigh for the Mini Fair which impossibly seemed frantic in comparison. Then again, Mini shows draw the crowds in all seasons.

Classic Car at the David Manners Group

At the David Manners Group, as we sell parts for older Classics such as Morris Minor parts, Triumph and Early MG Cars, many parts are interchangeable for other types of car of that age. As a result of this, we regularly have cars appear on our car park picking up parts from us. I never got to meet the owner of this delightful little run-a-round but we know what it is. If you can guess what it is, drop us a line.
