WORKS to bring the Midland Metro to Brierley Hill will see the Embankment closed to traffic for a month.

The road, which runs into Merry Hill shopping centre, will be temporarily closed to vehicles, between Level Street and Central Way, from Monday January 17 until Friday February 18, while utilities works go ahead as part of a major scheme to extend the Midland Metro from Wednesbury to Brierley Hill.

The alternative route for northbound traffic will be via The Embankment, The Boulevard, Merry Hill, Pedmore Road, Level Street, and vice versa.
