This is important folks – from next Monday (7th September 2015) Ogley Road at it’s junction with High Street, Brownhills just by the old Warreners Arms will be partially closed for gas main works.
There will be no right turn permitted from High Street into Ogley Road, and no right turn from Ogley Road into the High Street.
They works are essential, but will sadly cause issues for drivers as this is a major route between Burntwood and Walsall. Personally I’d recommend avoiding the Ogley Road altogether and diverting to Muckley Corner and down the A461 Lichfield road and vice versa.
Brownhills Councillor Steve Wade wrote to me informing me of the work, for which I thank him – the only Councillor in Brownhills to do so.
Just to inform you (e-mail enclosed) that will be some building works in Brownhills down the High Street and Ogley Road from the 7th September. Just wondered if you would like to inform your readers as they may not know about it. Some may want to find alternative routes for their travelling over the 3 weeks from the 7th.
Steve included a message from Balfour Beatty, who wrote:
Balfour Beatty are going to be doing gas mains replacement work on the junction of High Street and Ogley road Brownhills on the 7th September for approx. 3 weeks, our planner Karen Westwood has been liaising with Graham Wallace at Walsall council regarding the works which will have tempory traffic management in place ,which I understand will be no right turn from High Street into Ogley Road and will have a lane closure in place. Also there will be a no right turn out of Ogley road.
This is obviously going to be very inconvenient, but the work is necessary, so that’s the way it goes, I guess – huge gratitude to Councillor Wade for keeping us informed.
