Structural Maintenance Work for the A4601 Wolverhampton Rd and Avon Rd, Cannock

Staffordshire County Council will shortly be carrying out significant works at A4601 Cannock, as they start work on a £1,300,000 investment in the local area. The team will be addressing damaged drainage systems, replacing ironwork where necessary, replacing damaged kerbs, resurfacing isolated footpaths where necessary, installing upgraded crossing points and resurfacing the carriageway. This work will take place between the A34 Walsall Road and A005 Watling Street. 

When are the works taking place?

The work will commence in June 2023

What is the duration of the works?

It will take approximately 10 weeks to complete the works.

Will I be able to access my home/business?

During the first 4 weeks of the scheme, civils works will utilise traffic signals to allow safe working and enable vehicle flows to continue around the works.

Where large machinery is in use during surfacing phases a road closure will be necessary. 

To enable us to maintain access to local businesses and manage traffic flows, several phases of works have been programmed utilising daytime and night time phasing as detailed in the form attached.  

During road closure phases access within the closure points will be restricted. Public vehicles may need to be moved to outside of the closure points while works are taking place.  A signed diversion route will be in place to provide access to either end of the works.  

What effect could the works have on me?

We take care to make sure that work is completed with the minimum of disturbance to the local community but as with any major works, some minor traffic delays may occur.

Although we will do our best to ensure that noise pollution is kept to a minimum, it is likely that construction noise will be heard particularly when the night time phase of the works are in progress.

Please take care to plan your journeys and if necessary move vehicles to an accessible location during work phases (public letters will be delivered to affected properties with specific scheme details).  

How you can help us

You can help us to get the job done with the minimum of fuss by following this advice:

  • Please keep children away from the works to ensure their safety.
  • Please drive slowly and cautiously through the works.
  • Check your shoes before entering your property or car to make sure there is no bitumen from the works.
