A ROAD near Redditch is closed for a week whilst "emergency works" are carried out.

Redditch Borough Council has reminded residents that Green Lane in Studley will be closed for one week from today (Monday, March 4).

It's so emergency tree work can be carried out. The road is closed at the disused railway bridge.

In a post on Facebook, Redditch Borough Council said: "Full diversions will be in place during this time but there will be no access to the cycle track over the top of the Green Lane Bridge whilst the works take place.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused".
