There will be a partial road closure of Wednesbury Road, outside the old Brown Lion pub, due to emergency building repairs. Four-way temporary traffic lights will be installed at the junction of Wednesbury, Bescot, Darlaston and Old Pleck Roads. Traffic delays to be expected.
Due to the changeable weather conditions that have been experienced recently, our planned surface dressing programme – programmed for the school holidays to minimise impact - is running slightly behind schedule. Colleagues in other teams have taken advantage of the road closures to undertake grounds maintenance and litter picking works, but there will be a requirement for further closures to complete the carriageway surfacing works.
Walsall Council, in partnership with its Highways and Infrastructure contractor Tarmac and Kaarbontech, is celebrating after being awarded the Asset Management Award by the Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation.
Surface dressing works at Sutton Road and Beacon Road in Great Barr and Lichfield Road in Brownhills will go ahead on Saturday 10 August as well as phase 2 of the works programmed to be carried out on the Black Country Route on Sunday 11 August, providing weather conditions remain favourable.
Barns Lane in Rushall is currently closed to through traffic between the junctions of Winterley Lane and Kings Road due to emergency water main repair works being carried out by South Staffordshire Water.
