Hagley Road – partial closure

By on 30/05/2011 in News

Situation as of 5.40pm on Monday, May 30:

The Hagley Road has now re-opened both ways. There is one lane on the in-to-city side closed to allow utility companies to work, however this final lane will re-open during this evening.

Demolition work will continue tomorrow (Tuesday) which may result in further road closures along the Hagley Road between Barnsley Road and Meadow Road.

Any disruption will be kept to a minimum and will avoid peak traffic hours.

Commuters are advised to listen to local radio for the latest travel information. The Birmingham Prepared website will be updated with any necessary updates from this point forward.

Situation as of 12.50pm on Monday, May 30:

We have now had confirmation that both sides of the carriageway are closed, however we have been informed the road will be completly re-opened within the next 2-3 hours.

The in-to-city footpath will be blocked off for safety reasons.

Demolition crews will be returning tomorrow to continue work on the building. This is likely to involve further road closures, however disruption will be kept to a minimum and will avoid peak traffic times.

Updates will be posted when available on this site. For further details on the Birmingham Resilience Team and its activities, visit www.birminghamprepared.gov.uk

Situation as of 11.33am on Monday, May 30:

Hagley Road on the in-to-city carriageway between Barnsley Road and Meadow Road is currently closed.

Demolition crews and Birmingham City Council building surveyors are attending to an unsafe building following a fire yesterday.

Once the building has been made safe the road will be re-opened.

The road is expected to be closed for the remainder of this morning and the early part of this afternoon.

Traffic disruption is likely in the area. It is therefore advised to avoid the area if at all possible until this matter is resolved.
