MOTORISTS are advised to seek alternative routes at busy times while work is underway to repair a cable fault on Manor Way, Halesowen.

Dudley Council's traffic bosses say Western Power Distribution have issued a permit to carry out immediate repairs on the A456 at the junction with Grange Road (A459).

One lane will be closed and traffic disruption is "extremely likely," Dudley Council's network manager Andrew Sumner has warned.

He said: "Vehicular traffic may wish to seek alternative routes at peak times."

The work is expected to be completed by Monday June 14.
