A5127 Birmingham Road junction improvement
We are carrying out significant works on the A5127 Birmingham Road at the junction of Upper St Johns Street and the junction of Greenhill and Rotten Row in Lichfield.
The extent of the works will include alterations to all of the existing puffin crossings, converting them to include a staggered ‘sheep pen’ arrangement which will improve pedestrian capacity, reduce crossing times and limit the waiting period for vehicles. In addition a SCOOT traffic management system will also be installed which will have far reaching benefits to the entire A5127 transport corridor.
It is also proposed to alter the approach to the junction of the A5127 Birmingham Road and St. John Street outside the City Railway Station. The extents of the works here will see the nearside kerb line, on the westbound approach altered to provide an increased left turn only lane. This will improve capacity on the approach and provide more holding space within the junction itself; allowing better traffic flows along the A5127.
When are the works taking place?
The works started on 28 January 2018.
How long will the works take?
It will take approximately 20 weeks to complete the works.
Will I be able to access my home/business?
In order to undertake the works safely it will be necessary to provide traffic management throughout the duration of the construction.
However there is no intention to permanently restrict access to properties or businesses and we will do our utmost to work with individuals to limit this potential for any unnecessary disruption.
What effect could the works have on me?
Although we will endeavour to ensure that the works are completed in an expeditious manner and with the minimum amount of disruption, the nature of the works and their location means that there may be traffic delays.
How you can help us
It would be much appreciated if you could ensure that alternative routes are planned for delivery and travel.
