A BURST water main has led to a busy Rowley Regis road being closed to traffic in one direction today (Friday).

South Staffs Water were due to carry out work on the main on Throne Road yesterday and today (May 9 and 10).

The work means traffic will be one-way heading from Newbury Lane.

Traffic from Oldbury Road will be diverted via Birchfield Lane, A4123 and Newbury Lane.

Delays are expected at peak times.
