Overnight closures on main Staffordshire route as roundabout surfacing takes place

Work to surface a new roundabout providing access to a housing development will involve two overnight closures of a main South Staffordshire road next week.

Surfacing at the junction on the A449 just north of Penkridge will take place overnight next Thursday January 27 and Friday January 28. A full closure in both directions will be in place both nights between 8pm and 5pm. The scheme is funded by the developer.

A signed diversion route will be in place via the A5, A4601, A34, A449 and vice versa. People will be able to access properties through manned traffic management. Access to the new homes development will be available through the temporary site access south of the roundabout.

Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport David Williams said:

Work on the new roundabout north of Penkridge is nearing completion which is good news.
Unfortunately the two overnight closures are needed so that the team can carry out the surfacing work safely. A signed diversion will be in place and we’d ask people to allow additional travel time if this is their usual route.
We’d again like to thank people for their patience while work has taken place.”
