Lifford Lane to remain closed till Monday after chemical spill

Lifford Lane from Pershore Road to Melchett Road will remain closed till Monday (03/10/16) due to a chemical spill.

A specialist clean up unit along with fire crews from Kings Norton and Hay Mills were called to the scene along with specialists from the Environment Agency.

It’s believed the chemical leaked from a near by storage tank at the cement plant owned by Cemex.

Because of the damage to the road and to aid the clean up operation the road will now need to be resurfaced.

An investigation to the cause of the leak is now in progress.
