I’ve had a couple of queries – in person and by mail – as to what’s happening with the roads around Brownhills over the next week or so. From a mixture of the Walsall Roadworks Update (a press release sent to folks like me) and the excellent Walsall Transport on Facebook, I can give you the following info.
- Tomorrow, Sunday 18th November 20912 between 6:00am and 6:00pm, the Lindon Road at Anchor Bridge will be closed to traffic from the junction of the A452 High Street to Harley Close for resurfacing.
- Next week, Monday 19th to Friday 23rd November 2012, New Road in Brownhills will also be closed from 8:00am to 6:00pm, also due to resurfacing between the A452 High Street junction and Church Road.
- Next Sunday, 25th November 2012 between 6:00am and 6:00pm, the Lindon Road at Anchor Bridge will be closed to traffic from the junction of the A452 High Street to Harley Close to continue resurfacing works.
The closure of Lindon Road will be particularly disruptive and I would expect heavy volumes of traffic to concentrate on Friezland Lane – which, considering it’s current poor state, it is hardly appropriate for. Please take care.
I’m hoping that since there seems to be a drive on road improvement, that perhaps Brownhills High Street can be resurfaced soon. Bits of it don’t need sweeping, they need ploughing. Get your fingers out, Walsall…
