Roadwork misery hits Wolverhampton AGAIN

Commuters are facing more misery on the road today after a new batch of roadworks got under way in Wolverhampton.

Roadwork misery hits Wolverhampton AGAIN

The scheme at the junction of Wolverhampton Road and Wednesfield Way has caused long tailbacks for drivers and will last for another month.

The project runs 24 hours a day and three-way temporary traffic lights have been installed for its duration.

In recent months drivers have been besieged by delays and disruption in the city with the A41 Bilston Road being closed and major works taking place on the A449.

This latest round of work got under way on Monday and is part of a council scheme to improve traffic lights at the busy junction near New Cross Hospital. It is due to end on February 23.

Temporary traffic lights are in place around the Wolverhampton Road, Wednesfield Way and Deans Road junction, while there is no access from Wolverhampton Road and Church Street onto Wednesfield Way.

The city's Conservative group leader Wendy Thompson has called for the roadworks to be completed as quickly as possible.

Councillor Thompson said she was 'concerned for businesses and their costs' and described the work as 'immensely frustrating for commuters'.

Cabinet member Milkinder Jaspal said the work was much-needed and has urged motorists to be patient.

He insisted that it was being carried out to improve traffic flow at the junction.
