Work to improve a main road in East Staffordshire is set to be completed on June 30.
The repair works on the A518 Stafford Road in Uttoxeter at the junction with the B5013 Abbotts Bromley Road have included complete resurfacing and two-way temporary traffic lights have been in place. These are manually controlled from 7am to 9.30am and then 3.30pm to 7pm to minimise disruption during peak hours.
For the work to be completed safely and on schedule, a full closure of this section of the A518 will be needed on Sunday June 27 between 7.30am and 5pm. A signed diversion will be in place during this period. The B5013 will also remain closed until works are completed.
Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport David Williams said:
The A518 is the main route into Uttoxeter from the west and so we want to ensure it is well maintained to accommodate the volume of traffic using it every day.
The works team has made every effort to minimise disruption through manually controlled temporary traffic signals at peak times, though unfortunately some is inevitable. So the scheme can be completed on schedule, this section will need to be closed during the day on Sunday June 27. We’re urging people to allow additional travel time to allow for the diversion and would like to thank people for their patience while work has been carried out.”
