Cradley Heath Interchange Rebuild
On 28 September 2014, Cradley Heath Interchange was closed for a complete reconstruction costing £1.9 million from a Government grant under the Brierley Hill Better Bus Area.

The following photographs show the progress as the old Interchange was demolished and the new one gradually rose in its place.  All photos were taken from approximately the same location.
