60 cell custody facilities for West Midlands Police.
Most of the land around there is industrial isn't it?As for Sandwell & Dudley, it's ridiculous the underinvestment around the station. There could be a linking street with public frontages from the station to Oldbury, and then offices and residential combined on the vast amounts of land.
I heard there wouldn't be any cells before prior to it getting built. Any reasons you've heard they couldn't dig down deep?Daft that West Bromwich Police station was built without cells in the first place!
Funniest forum post I've read in months.Slightly O/T, but I do remember the grand opening of the “new” station after the rebuild and rename. All the local bigwigs and Rail representatives were there to welcome the first Inter-City train to stop there.
Except the driver of the said train forgot that he was supposed to stop there and carried on through to Birmingham.
