Motorists are being advised of possible delays due to resurfacing works on Quarry Bank High Street (A4100).
The works will take place between the roundabout at Park Road and the Dudley borough boundary at Cradley Forge from Monday 28 July and will include the installation of a new 20mph zone in the vicinity of Quarry Bank Primary School.
It is anticipated that the work will take around two weeks to complete and the majority of it will be undertaken on weekdays during the restricted hours of 9.30am and 3.30pm. The work is taking place due to the poor condition of the carriageway.
To enable the works to be carried out safely the road will be closed between those times to traffic heading towards Merry Hill and Brierley Hill. The road will be kept open to traffic coming from Merry Hill and Brierley Hill heading towards Cradley.
One section of the road, from the roundabout at Park Road to Queen Street, will be laid overnight during a complete road closure. This is programmed for the night of Friday 1 August. Diversion routes will be sign posted throughout.
Once the resurfacing is finished, the road markings and high friction surfacing will be reinstated.
Councillor Khurshid Ahmed, cabinet member for transportation said:
“We are undertaking this resurfacing work during the school summer holidays when the roads are quieter.
“Other than one evening the roads will remain passable at all times but we are asking people to allow extra time for possible delays.
“I would like to thank our residents, businesses and motorists for their patience as we undertake this important work.”
