What is Redditch known for?


) 104.6 (Kidderminster) and 94.7 (Hereford) FM (FM broadcasting); as well as 738 (Worcester) and 1584 (North Herefordshire) MW on AM. Although the short lived administrative County of Hereford and Worcester was abolished in 1996 and reverted to the traditional historic counties of Herefordshire and Worcestershire, the name of the station was not altered to reflect the change. Transmitters BBC Hereford and Worcester still transmits on both AM and FM. The original, and two strongest FM transmitters are on 104 FM (Great Malvern, serving Worcestershire) and 94.7 FM (Ridge Hill (Ridge Hill transmitting station), between Ross On Wye and Ledbury near Much Marcle, serving Herefordshire), These signals are not particularly powerful, and have limited coverage outside the two counties, unlike stations such as BBC WM. An additional FM transmitter on 104.6 has recently improved coverage in the Kidderminster area & in February 2006, a new transmitter was turned on for Redditch (Headless Cross (Headless Cross, Hereford and Worcester)) on 104.4FM, as reception in the town had been unreliable. Southeast is the older village of Alvechurch and beyond that Redditch. South of the village, across the M42 motorway, is the large stretch of farmland of Cobley and Tardebigge which runs to the ancient seat of the Earl of Plymouth, Hewell Grange (now a prison). Services Barnt Green railway station is on the Cross-City Line (Redditch to Lichfield) and the Birmingham to Worcester via Bromsgrove Line line. The area is close to junctions on the M5 (M5 motorway) and M42 (M42 motorway) motorways, as well as the nearby A38 (A38 road). The cloverleaf interchange was not implemented in great numbers in the United Kingdom, because of these performance problems. There were originally three, one in Redditch and two in Livingston (Livingston, Scotland). One of the Livingston examples was remodeled in the mid 2000s as part of a public transport project. The major junction of the M11 (M11 motorway) and A14 (A14 road (Great Britain)) at the Girton interchange near the outskirts of Cambridge consists of two cloverleaf loops, making essentially a 'half' cloverleaf interchange. This junction is prone to heavy traffic congestion at peak times, chiefly due to the requirement for westbound A14 traffic to exit the main dual carriageway, traverse one of the cloverleaf loops at slow speeds, and then engage in weaving with traffic exiting the M11, in order to continue westward along the A14. In Ireland, a partial cloverleaf set-up exists at the interchange of the N4 and the M50 in Dublin, allowing free-flow movements in all directions. A similar design has been implemented at the N7 M50 interchange. Bournville is served by Bournville railway station on the Cross-City Line to Birmingham New Street (Birmingham New Street railway station), Lichfield and Redditch. While other suburban Birmingham railway stations feature the yellow and green corporate livery of Centro (West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive), Bournville railway station is instead painted in Cadbury's purple. - 267 Redditch 54.25 Borough Worcestershire - thumb The new Birmingham Coach Station (File:Birmingham Coach Station.jpg), on the site of the former Digbeth Coach StationMost of the network is operated on a commercial basis, with some services (usually evenings and Sundays) supported by Centro.

The rest of the county has retained the distinctive tones of the West Country accent, typified and made famous by The Archers, the world's longest running radio soap opera, set in a fictional county situated somewhere between the (in reality, bordering) counties of Worcestershire and Warwickshire. Additionally, there are "new towns" which were created during the 20th century, such as Basildon, Redditch and Telford. Milton
