Kenilworth Road and Balsall Street to close for resurfacing works
From Saturday 13 February to Wednesday 17 February, the B4101 Kenilworth Road, running through Knowle, and the B4101 Balsall Street, Balsall Common, will be closed to through traffic to allow works to be carried out to keep the road in a safe condition.
A complete closure of B4101 between Balsall Common and Knowle villages is required. To minimise disruption along this busy route, the work will be carried out during the school half-term holiday week with works commencing on Saturday 13 February 2016. A diversion route via Hampton in Arden will be clearly signed.
In order to complete the improvement works, the road will be restricted between 9.00am and 3.30pm each day – the route will be open to traffic at all other times. Access to local businesses and properties along the roads will be maintained during the works.
The road surface on the B4101 has now reached the end of its useful life and needs to be resurfaced. Whilst this will cause disruption to road users during the works, it will result in a new surface that should remain maintenance-free for around 15 years, meaning less inconvenience in the future.
This scheme is being funded as a result of the Council’s successful bid to the Department for Transport’s –“Challenge Fund”. This additional money is awarded to Councils who demonstrate they are delivering value for money in carrying out cost effective maintenance solutions.
This is part of the Council’s three-year highway maintenance programme to ensure the roads across the borough do not deteriorate and become hazardous. Solihull Council apologises to all road users for any inconvenience caused as a result of these essential works.
