A CRADLEY road which is used as a popular route from Quarry Bank to Halesowen is set to close for three weeks.

Maypole Fields will close from Monday January 25 until Sunday February 14.

The road is home to a number of businesses.

Dudley Council said: "The purpose of the closure is to safely facilitate water mains renewal works."

The diversion will be Maypole Hill, Netherend Lane, Mogul Lane, and vice versa.

Access to frontages will be maintained where safe to do so.
