Coneygree Road, Tipton - Bridge demolition

Works will be carried out on a redundant railway bridge on Coneygree Road, Tipton from Wednesday 14 October.  The upcoming demolition will be carried out for a period of six weeks. This is a major step forward, following the successful removal of a similar structure along the disused South Staffordshire Railway line, in August.

The team will carry out up to three weeks of devegetation activity to enable access to the area before the bridge is taken down. There will be a localised road closure is required on Coneygree Road and Victoria Road between the junctions of Peel Street and Tudor Street for six weeks.

During the activity, a short and clearly marked diversion route will be in place for both pedestrians and vehicle users enabling them to complete their essential journeys. In addition, traffic marshals will be present 24 hours a day to assist those living in Coneygree Road and Victoria Road.

Travel tips

You will still be able to get to where you need to go, but consider the following:

Plan ahead and leave more time for your journey. If you travel, you’ll need more time for your journey to take account of changes and diversions.
Consider using another route where possible. Check apps that show traffic levels before leaving.
