Newton Road will be closed on both sides between Hamstead Road and Pages Lane from approximately 6.30am to approximately 12 noon, and there will be diversions while surface treatment work is underway.

A Sandwell Council spokesperson said: “Contractors will assist with access to the affected properties and side roads and although there may be minor delays, they will sort this out as soon as possible.

“Emergency services have been informed and access will be maintained for them where necessary during the works.

“The works have been completed relatively quickly and the contractors are aiming to have both sides of Newton Road open by noon.

“A second phase of work is required and is planned for May, weather permitting, to seal the new surface in place and dates will be communicated as soon as possible when this will be completed.

“Thank you for thinking along with us during these essential maintenance activities.”
