Castle Hill will become one-way for traffic from Monday, June 8, for up to five weeks, as part of works to extend the Metro from Wednesbury to Brierley Hill.

The road will be one-way in the direction towards Dudley.

The one-way system is expected to be in place for up to five weeks, as South Staffordshire Water carry out "essential" utility diversions and upgrades.

Signed diversions will be in place for both general traffic and public transport.

Transport bosses are urging people who need to travel during this time to plan ahead and leave more time for journeys, particularly if they travel along Castle Hill.

Meanwhile, Union Street in the town centre will be closed until May 29 while Metro-related work is carried out.

The road is closed at its junction with King Street and High Street, to allow for further utility work to take place while the Midland Metro work continues.
