Road in Halesowen remains closed

Posted on:

Investigations are continuing on a busy Halesowen road after reports of a damaged drain causing a water leak.

Hagley Road West remains closed while work continues to identify the problem and repair it.

Motorists are being warned to expect continued delays while the road is closed.

Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member responsible for highways, said:

We had reports of a dip in the road and after carrying out initial checks, found water gathering below the surface. We believe this is being caused by a broken drain however more work and checks need to be undertaken to establish the exact cause and get it repaired.
We apologise for any delays caused to motorists, but if the weather is kind to us, we should have it repaired this month.

Temporary traffic lights are in place along Spies Lane as part of the work.
