Drivers face a miserable summer as Severn Trent has announced 10 weeks of roadworks are to take place around Station Road.
Starting on Monday (July 1), temporary traffic lights will be in place while about 1km of sewer pipe is replaced.
In a letter sent out to residents in the affected area, Severn Trent says the work is ‘anticipated’ to take 10 weeks to complete but it cannot rule out ‘unpredictable circumstances’ which could lengthen the time period.
Three-way temporary traffic lights will be in place at the junctions of Station Road and King Street and Station Road and Taylor Street.
The works are likely to cause added stress to parents as they will stretch well into the six-week summer holidays.
“We recognise there is no good time to apply temporary traffic restrictions on busy roads but it is necessary to make sure that the work is carried out with everyone’s safety in mind,” the letter read.
Access to businesses and homes will be maintained throughout the work.
