Junction and safety improvement work set to begin in Penkridge

A new pedestrian crossing will be installed in Penkridge next week with junction improvement works set to follow.

The traffic light-controlled puffin crossing will be installed on Boscomoor Lane between the A449 Wolverhampton Road roundabout and the junction with Vale Gardens. This is being funded by the developer of the new Lyne Hill homes and constructed by the county council.

Work will begin next Monday November 18 and last for two weeks. When this has been completed the A449 roundabout junction will be resurfaced, with work beginning on December 2 and lasting a week.

Temporary traffic lights will be operating while most of the work takes place. When taking place on the pavements, pedestrian walk ways and diversions will be in place.

After the crossing has been installed, the approaches to it will be resurfaced in addition to the A449 junction roundabout. This work will take place overnight for three nights from Monday December 2. The resurfacing work will take place between 7.30pm and 6am, and this section of Boscomoor Lane will need to be closed with a signed diversion in place.

Staffordshire County Council’s head of highways James Bailey said:

Safety on our roads is a top priority and so we’re pleased to be able to install this new puffin crossing. In addition we’ll be carrying out maintenance work on the busy roundabout junction of the A449 and Boscomoor Lane. This will take place at night times during the first week of December to minimise disruption. We would like to thank people in advance for their patience while work is carried out.”
