Easing of Coronavirus restrictions

High Street, Burton

As part of the regeneration project for Burton-upon-Trent and following completion of phase one of the works on Station Street, we will soon be commencing the next phase of the works on High Street. The works will see improvement to High Street from Worthington Way to its junction with New Street to make this section of the town centre a more attractive environment for all users. 

Work will include resurfacing of the road between Worthington Way and New Street and installing new footways between Station Street and Market Place using the same materials as the recently completed Station Street improvements.

When are the works taking place?

The works are currently programmed to start on 4 January 2021.

When will the works be completed?

The works are expected to be completed by the end of May.

Will I be able to access my home/business?

To carry out the improvement works safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to close High Street from 4 January 2021 for up to 5 months.

We will maintain access to all shops that are within the area of the works. Pedestrian access to properties and businesses along the length of the scheme will also be maintained throughout the works.

What effect could the works have on me?

It is inevitable that there will be some inconvenience as a consequence of the works and there may be times of short restrictions as we carry out these essential repairs outside each property, however we will do our utmost to work with individuals to limit this and where possible reduce any unnecessary disruption.

How you can help us

Please follow all signed pedestrian diversion routes and do not access any areas restricted as part of the ongoing works; these diversions are for the protection of the public, particularly young children and our workforce. 

Check footwear before entering any shops, your car or once you return home to make sure there is no bituminous material which could be inadvertently transferred to carpets or furnishings. 

It would be much appreciated if you could make alternative arrangements for deliveries that avoid High Street if possible. Our Site team will contact each frontage business individually to discuss specific issues.
