Work to improve a South Staffordshire road and provide access to a new housing development starts on Monday February 15.
The 16-week scheme on Pendeford Mill Lane, Bilbrook, will see the road widened along with the installation of new signs, road markings, lighting and drains. In addition, a new section of footpath and cycleway will be created, and a toucan crossing installed. Access to the housing development will be built to the west of the Joey’s Lane junction. The scheme is being funded by the developer.
For the work to be completed safely, traffic management will be in place throughout the works period. A three-way traffic signal will be operating at the junction of Pendeford Mill Lane and the new access road during the works. Towards the end of the scheme there will need to be some overnight full closures of Pendeford Mill Lane while surfacing takes place. A signed diversion will be in place and advertised closer to this phase.
Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport David Williams said:
This developer-funded scheme will see improvements carried out on Pendeford Mill Lane including widening and a new toucan crossing.
While we anticipate a lower volume of traffic due to current travel advice there will be some disruption so those who do need to make an essential journey in the area should allow extra travel time. We’d like to apologise in advance for any delays caused.”
