HIGHWAYS chiefs say a public right of way at Saltwells Nature Reserve will remain closed until next month while repairs to fix the subsiding footway continue.

The path is currently closed from approximately 25 metres east of Pedmore Road to approximately 130 metres east of Pedmore Road.

Dudley's traffic department bosses say it will remain shut until Sunday March 14 while repairs are carried out to fix the footway which is subsiding, possibly due to mine works.

Alternative routes for pedestrians have been provided.
