The work is being carried out by Transport for West Midlands (TfWM), part of the West Midlands Combined Authority.

Pete Bond, director of transport services for TfWM, said: “We apologise in advance for any inconvenience these works may cause but they need to be done and once complete will enhance the station environment.

“Motorists can also play their part by arriving in good time to get a free parking space or by considering using public transport to get to the station.”
