Drivers in leafy suburb hit with diversions

Residents of a leafy suburb of Wolverhampton are to experience delays as a retirement housing company carries out works.

Work taking place in July 2017 on Stockwell Road as part of the McCarthy & Stone development.

Drivers will be unable to travel along Stockwell Road in Tettenhall in both directions between its junction with Lloyd Road and Danescourt Road.

The works are due to start on January 8 and last until January 12.

A diversion route will be in place throughout the works. The diversion route is Lloyd Road, Church Hill Road, Stockwell Road and vice versa.

All through traffic for The Rock and Wergs Road, Lower Street and Codsall Road, drivers should follow the diversion via The Rock and Lower Street and vice versa.

The closure of the road has been brought in "to facilitate traffic calming measures on behalf of McCarthy & Stone."

The news comes as earlier this year, McCarthy & Stone built retirement apartments along Stockwell Road following the demolition of the historic so-called ‘Clock House’ that once stood on the site.

Recently, BT only just moved out of the road after repairing and laying new telephone lines.
