A PUBLIC right of way in Pedmore is set to be closed for five months to allow for brickwork repairs to a railway bridge.

Pedestrians will not be able to use the path on Worcester Lane from Monday, January 30, until Friday, May 26.

The closure will enable Centurion Site Services, who are acting on behalf of Network Rail, to safely carry out the repairs.

Vehicles will not be affected during the closure, but a diversion for pedestrians will be in place via Quarry Park Road, Worcester Lane and vice-versa.
