Resurfacing work starts on High Street

A £150,000 scheme to replace damaged kerbs, footpaths and carriageway resurfacing along Pelsall High Street has begun.

The work, which is  expected to take 6 weeks to complete, is being undertaken by Walsall Council’s highways partner Lafarge Tarmac.

It will initially replace the misaligned kerbs along the street and carry out repairs to the drainage areas, while footway resurfacing will take place on Sundays to minimise disruption to traders.

Businesses will be updated during the course of the scheme.

Contractors hope to resurface the road in late February or early March, once the pavement works and kerb replacement has been completed.

The council warned that on-street parking will be reduced while the resurfacing works take place.

Councillor Lee Jeavons, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “There will inevitably be some disruption during the improvement works which the contractor hopes to keep to a minimum but the resurfacing has been needed for a while now so I’m sure it’s worth putting up with any minor inconvenience while it is carried out.”
