Resurfacing To Start At Dudley Road Junction

Motorists are being reminded to expect delays during essential resurfacing near to a gateway road junction in Dudley.

Highways bosses have given the green light to improve the road surface along section of the A4123 Birmingham New Road, south of Tipton Road to Coneygree Road – close to Burnt Tree junction.

The work on the 900 metre section of road, north and southbound, starts on August 15 and is expected to last three weeks. It will be carried out in the school holidays and on weekday nights, from 7, to minimise disruption for motorists.

There will be lane closures and a 20mph zone during the work. Councillor Hilary Bills, cabinet member for environmental services, said:

“This is essential resurfacing to make sure that the road is in the best condition for people to drive on at such an important and busy junction. We recognised early on that given the volume of traffic that uses this junction we need to do everything we can to minimise the disruption for motorists.

“Hopefully people will bear with us while we get the work done as quickly and as safely as possible.”

Letters have also been sent to residents to let them know about the work well in advance. Last year the council received around £9million from the Department for Transport’s Challenge Fund towards repairing major roads over a three-year period.
