Four month road closures as Stourbridge bridge is replaced

Network Rail will be undertaking work to replace the railway bridge on Parkfield Road, Stourbridge from Monday 8th January until the end of May 2018.

Parkfield Road, Burnt Oak Drive and Vauxhall Road will be closed to facilitate this work.  

Diversions for traffic will be put in place – using Church Street, Junction Road, Stepping stones, Birmingham Street and vice-versa. Diversions for pedestrians will be via other footways alongside adjoining streets.

Access to the fire station and Burnt Oak Drive will be maintained and Network Rail is facilitating access to Age Concern on St John’s Road.

The majority of the work to remove and replace the structure will take place over the weekends of Saturday 24 February to Monday 26 February and Saturday 3 March to Monday 5 March.  The main bridge replacement works will be undertaken continuously over these weekends.

Bus operators have been informed of the work and are making arrangements to ensure there is little impact to services.  

Part of the diversion works requires a temporary (non- pedestrian) bridgeto be installed and this work will be undertaken during a series of short Saturday night possessions commencing 13 January 2018. Where possible as much of the works is programmed for normal day time working.  

Any queries should be directed to Network Rail’s 24 hour helpline on 03457 11 41 41. Details will also be live on their website soon, at
