A454 Willenhall Road Phase 3

Closes 6 Jan 2020

Opened 29 Oct 2019

Overview

City of Wolverhampton Council is consulting with the public to assist in the decision-making process with plans to improve the Willenhall Road corridor. The Willenhall Road corridor (A454) is a key gateway into the City of
Wolverhampton and a direct link that connects the city to the Black Country
and strategic road network via M6 Junction 10.

The corridor, which sees 20,000 vehicles pass through the gateway every day, is identified within the Black Country Core Strategy as a growth area in need of improvements.

Significant regeneration proposals have been outlined at key locations along the route including plans for 8,000 new homes and 12,000 new jobs in the area.

In April, phases one and two of the improvements were approved by the City Council’s Cabinet Panel for detailed development.

The City Council has identified a further two options for consideration as part of the third phase of the project which will contribute to improve journeys on and around the A454 corridor. These options include:

Option A: £6m (approx.) project widening Neachells Lane to the West side

Option B: £16m (approx.) project developing a new link road and ‘hamburger’ island at Neachells Lane

The consultation will end on Monday 6 January 2020. The overall scheme is set to be underway by 2021.
