Roadworks that could affect your journey

Roadworks and road closures that we think will cause significant traffic problems are shown in our supplementary information and legal notices. Further information can be found at, shown above.

Other roadworks

The weekly list isn't a full list of roadworks in Sandwell. Information about other roadworks can be found by searching our street works map

The map will give you information about planned roadworks around Sandwell - just search for a street name.

The information provided in the street works map is updated by the companies carrying out the work. The council accepts no responsibility for any inaccuracies or inconvenience caused.

Road resurfacing

Sandwell’s forward programmes for 2023/24 have been derived using the latest on condition data, which has been analysed and prioritised using a risk-based approach in accordance with best practice. We also have a list of roads we are resurfacing. 

The prioritisation of the schemes considers risk factors, such as condition, network hierarchy, accident data, proximity to education, medical and retail establishments, skid resistance, proximity to public transport hubs and cycle routes and aims to target those carriageways that are in a poor condition and pose the highest risk to highway users.

The schemes listed will always be subject to an Engineer’s inspection and judgement to determine the final treatment type and extent of each scheme. These inspections help to finalise the programmes each year and are therefore subject to change.

The schemes listed below do not necessarily indicate that the whole road will be treated as some schemes will be only on certain sections of a road.

The extent of the treatment is based on the condition of the road and will be confirmed following an engineering inspection.

Emergency roadworks are sometimes necessary at very short notice. This work may not appear on our weekly list or the street works map.
