Two mile-long sections of the A449 on the Stourbridge Road and on the section between Wall Heath and Stourton are set to close for 18 days between 9.30am on Tuesday, May 30 and 3pm on Sunday, June 18 for works.

There will also be five days of closures on the two sections of road between 6.30pm on Monday, May 22 and 6am on Friday, May 26.

The works by Staffordshire County Council will see required patching work done, red hatching being stripped off, cats eyes being removed and white lining added.

It will seen the A449 closed between the Wodehouse Lane Roundabout and School Road, next to the Dudley Arms, on the Stourbridge Road and from Doctors Lane to the Stourton junction of the A458 on the other section.

It means diversions will be in place for motorists on both sides of the closures on the Stourbridge Road, including through Wombourne from Wodehouse Lane and the B4176 Dudley Road, and along the A458 through Stourton and Enville.

Staffordshire County Council have been contacted for a comment.
