A NETHERTON road which leads to a school is set to close while the footpath is repaired.

The School Drive, which leads to Sledmere Primary, will close from Monday July 26 until Friday August 6.

It will be closed between Buffrey Road and the school gates (including access to Windsor Crescent and Clarence Road) from 8am till 4pm each day.

The diversion is via Buffery Road, Abbey Road, Windsor Crescent or Clarence Road, and vice versa.

Dudley Council said: "The purpose of the closures is to safely facilitate footway reconstruction."
