Wednesbury To Brierley Hill Project Update – 6th February 2017

The initial work to clear the overgrown section of the disused railway line on the Wednesbury to Brierley Hill route is now complete. The clearing works took place in order to allow for the next step, a number of detailed structural and environmental surveys to be carried out.

As expected on a disused railway line, the vegetation removal has revealed a large amount of detritus and debris, as well as many uncovered manholes and drains. The manholes and drains have temporarily been made safe, but people are reminded that as the site is an active construction site and therefore not accessible to members of the public.
