HIGHWAYS chiefs have closed a Kingswinford road while repairs are carried out to fix a burst water main.

Sunnymead Road between Nanaimo Way and Madeley Road has been temporarily closed to traffic until Wednesday January 13.

The restriction has been put in place to enable workmen to safely carry out repairs to the burst water main.

Traffic will be diverted along via Nanaimo Way, Bromley Lane and Rangeways Road, and vice versa.

Access to frontages will be maintained where safe.
