Motorists are facing delays after resurfacing work began on a major route through the Black Country.

Motorists using Birmingham New Road have faced congestion during these roadworks

A team from Dudley Council began work on the scheme on the Birmingham New Road at Coseley on Monday morning.

One lane has been closed on both sides of the carriageway between the junction with Mason Street and the junction with the A457 Sedgley Road.

Long queues have built up along Birmingham New Road due to the roadworks

Traffic has been building up in the area at busy times of the day causing long queues for drivers travelling between Dudley and Wolverhampton.

The route is one of the busiest in the region and in 2017 a £1.5m scheme aimed at tackling congestion along the stretch at Coseley was completed.

It was also designed to address road safety concerns following a series of accidents.

The work included the creation of new filter lanes and improved pedestrian crossings and conditions for cyclists while bus priority measures were also introduced.
