National Highways has announced that resurfacing will continue tonight with closures taking place from 9pm to 5am the following morning, with the exception of Tuesday and Wednesday this week, as well as Monday, August 8, when no closures are planned.

The closures are part of the latest stage of improvements at the junction for Walsall and Wolverhampton which has been long-standing bottleneck, often leading to queues on the roundabout motorway slip roads, the A454 Black Country Route and other nearby roads.
