MOTORISTS have been advised to take alternative routes due to "heavy congestion" in Pensnett. 

Roadworks and temporary lights are in place on High Street at the Albert Street junction. 

Delays of up to 20 minutes are expected. 

The works are due to infrastructure repairs being carried out by Dudley Council. 

Drivers have been asked to consider using alternative routes. 

The repairs are only scheduled for today (Thursday, April 7).
