Two-day road closure as work on £6.3m road scheme gathers pace

Corbyns Hall Lane will be closed for two days this week as part of ongoing works for a £6.3 million road improvement scheme in Pensnett.

The closure today and tomorrow, February 12th and 13th, is to allow Virgin to carry out essential utility diversionary works for the Pensnett improvement scheme. A signed diversion will be in place and access to frontages retained where safe to do so. Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member for environmental services, said:

“We are now entering a critical stage of this major improvement scheme, and while there will be a lot of work going on there will inevitably be disruption to journeys.

“We ask motorists to bear with us while the work is carried out, and to seek alternative routes where possible.”

The £6.3 million road improvement scheme in Pensnett will see two new sets of traffic lights on High Street and the junctions with High Oak and Tansey Green Road. This will ease congestion and make it safer for turning traffic.

The road will be widened along the High Street for two lanes to be introduced in both directions at the new traffic lights, while there will also be additional pedestrian crossings.
