Andy Street visited Dudley Town Centre today to oversee work that has begun on bringing The Midlands Metro into the borough.
He is delighted to see investment in Dudley as stated "It is happening! Fantastic to be on site today in Dudley seeing the work underway that will bring the Metro into the town centre and onto Brierley Hill.
"This is happening due to the great teamwork with Dudley borough Council, led by Patrick Harley, in achieving this."
The Metro line will be extended to Dudley from Wednesbury and on to Brierley Hill for the Merry Hill shopping centre in a £450m overhaul. The first services are due to launch in 2023.
