A section of road on the outskirts of Wolverhampton City Centre was completely closed on Friday 12 June, 2015 following concerns about the structural safety of a building.

The city council has proactively taken the decision to close part of Corn Hill, in Horseley Fields, in the interests of public safety.

The section either side of the Steam Mill building was already closed to vehicles, but the closure has now been extended to pedestrians and cyclists following fresh concerns about the structural safety of the disused building.

Access is maintained to Albion Street and the public car park from the Willenhall Road end of Corn Hill. Access to the Great Western Pub is maintained from Sun Street.

The Steam Mill is a key regeneration site and urgent discussions are taking place with interested parties to bring forward the regeneration of the site as soon as possible.
