Work began on Monday March 31 to allow continuous traffic flow from Dorridge Road into Station Approach with a zebra crossing by The Forest Hotel.

The firm – which is demolishing nearby Forest Court for a supermarket – hopes to complete works early in May.

It said: “Traffic management and stop/go signs will be used during the works to maintain safety for motorists and contractors.

“Safe access to and from the railway station and car park will be maintained, along with clearly defined routes for pedestrians.

“Traffic flow will return to normal each evening with no works taking place out of hours or at weekends.

“Contractors will then return to complete the final road surface/raised junction and install the zebra crossing and street lighting towards the end of the development in the autumn.”

The firm also said it had “received lots of early interest” in six retail units at the development and “hope to announce some tenants in the coming months”.
