Good news at last for people who drive along the pot-holed High Street.
Repair work is set to begin tomorrow (October 13), months after the winter weather that caused extensive damage to the village’s road surfaces.
Work was scheduled to take place over three days, but will now take just one after local authority partner Tarmac brought in a specialist piece of equipment that can carry out patch repair work quickly.
Councillor Tom Ansell, Walsall Council cabinet member for transport, said: “The work was going to take three days but Tarmac have a piece of equipment unexpectedly available to accommodate this size of patching required, which cuts down the time from three days to one.”
Diversions will be in place while work is carried out, but workmen will strive to keep disruption to a minimum.
Councillor Garry Perry, chairman of Pelsall Pride and one of the village’s ward councillors, said: “Pelsall has a busy little High Street and the work planned is both welcome and essential to repair the very obvious poor condition of the road.
“The partnership with Tarmac will not only limit the disruption to one day, but ensure a further area in Station Road will also benefit from repair.”
