TWO roads in Halesowen could be closed for almost a week because of water leaks.

South Staffs Water closed Malt Mill Lane at Shell Corner, between Long Lane and Olive Hill Road, from yesterday (June 4) to carry out repairs to a burst water main.

The diversion route is Long Lane, Springfield Road, Olive Hill Road and vice-versa.

The supplier also closed Short Street, Halesowen, due to a water leak.

Traffic will be diverted via Stourbridge Road, Grammer School Lane, Old Hawne Lane, Whittingham Road and Attwood Street.

In both cases, it is anticipated that it could take until June 10 to complete the work.
