Dudley’s highways chiefs have issued a temporary road closure notice for the road from the junction of Longlands Road to number 4.

A diversion has been put in place with motorists being diverted along Longlands Road, Manor Abbey Road, Raddens Road and vice versa.

The restriction has been ordered to enable workers to safely repair a water leak, with the work expected to take until Wednesday February 28.
