West Bromwich resurfacing work
Published on 18th May 2012
Drivers are being warned they could face delays over the weekend when resurfacing work is scheduled to take place in part of West Bromwich town centre.
The work is due to start at the weekend, but it could be delayed if there is heavy rain.
It is planned to resurface the Reform Street/Overend Street junction as part of the multi-million redevelopment of the town centre.
Letters are being sent to affected residents and businesses.
The resurfacing work is set to take place at the weekend and will be carried out in two halves.
The side of the road nearest to the multi-storey car park is scheduled to be resurfaced on Saturday. The opposite side will be resurfaced on Sunday which will mean a temporary closure of Overend Street and Herbert Street .
During next week the new permanent traffic signals will be brought into operation.
A closure of Cronehills Linkway will also be implemented during next week.
This closure will last for 10 weeks to allow construction work to take place on the extension of the town square.
Bus services will be diverted around the Ringway, Reform St and the new Tesco ringway extension ( Congregation Way ).
During the Cronehills Linkway closure, access to the car park for the disabled, opposite the Public, will be from Cronehills Linkway for the first 5 weeks and then from New St for the last 5 weeks. Yellow and black diversion signs will be in operation.
Details of the planned changes can be found on the Sandwell Council website.
