A £26M project to cut congestion in the West Midlands has been approved by the government.
The scheme will cover four sites in Walsall, including widening the Brown Lion Junction between the A4308 and the A4148.
The Department of Transport is to pay £14M towards the project, which will improve vehicle and pedestrian access to the Black Country Enterprise Zone.
The remainder of the funding will come from Walsall Council, transport authority Centro and local businesses.
Walsall councillor Lee Jeavons said: “It is great news that the DfT officially has given us the go ahead to press ahead with this major transport scheme.
“Improvements to these arterial routes, which are close to one of the busiest motorway networks in the country, will support new jobs and reduce traffic on busy routes.”
