Road markings and signage at a key road junction in Lichfield will be enhanced to make it clearer to road users.
Following discussions with National Highways, crews from Staffordshire County Council will be installing new double white lines and road studs at the Hilliards Cross junction with the A38 in Fradley.
A worn-out sign at the southbound exit slip road will also be replaced to warn motorists of two-way traffic.
Added to this, the centre joint of the road on Wood End Lane will undergo resurfacing, and vegetation cut back to improve visibility.
Works will take place over three nights from 19-21 September, and will involve overnight closures, lane closures and diversions.
Staffordshire County Council Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport David Williams said:
“We have been aware of residents’ concerns at this particular location, and have been working with National Highways over the past few weeks to form a solution to these issues.
“Works to improve the junction will be going ahead from the 19 September. Due to the road and the lane closures that are needed to keep our workforce safe, these works will be carried out overnight to minimise disruption to road users as much as possible.
“We are hopeful that the measures we put in place will help reassure local people, and help motorists better understand the nature of the junction.”
No works will be taking place during the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
