Drivers using one of Birmingham’s busiest roads have been warned of ten-month roadworks from Monday May 9. The Severn Trent scheme will see over a mile and a half of aging pipes replaced in and around Bromford Lane at the junction with Tyburn Road in Erdington.
Once completed, the works will move to the surrounding areas. The whole project, which costs £867,000, is expected to last until 2023.
The works will see parts of Tyburn Road and Bromford Lane reduced to single lanes and other roads closed. A fully signposted diversion route will be in place, Severn Trent said.

The company’s Rachel Lowe said: “Erdington customers deserve a modern water supply they can rely on. That’s why we make this investment to prevent future leaks and bursts.
“We will do everything we can to minimize any disruption while we work in the area. We would like to thank everyone in advance for their patience and understanding as we complete this essential work as quickly and safely as possible.
