Council bosses have today confirmed that the final works for the multi-million pound road improvement scheme in Pensnett will be fully complete by the end of July.
The road is now in the final stages of a huge £6.3million modernisation programme, which has seen the road widened and new traffic signals installed to improve the traffic flow and pedestrian safety in the area.
The council is now putting the finishing touches to the scheme, including installing traffic signals, resurfacing the road and repairing pavements.
Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member for environmental services, said:
I would like to once again thank local residents, businesses and motorists for their patience during these works.
Earlier this month, the first new traffic signals at the junction of High Street and High Oak were switched on.
Pensnett High Street is a busy road and we know the works have caused a lot of disruption but when the final works are completed which includes; Tansey Green Road and Corbyns Hall Road, it will have a big impact on people’s journeys through the area. However, motorists are advised that until the works are fully complete, they may still experience delays at peak times.”
