Work on junction scheme in Penkridge gets under way
Posted on Thursday 27th October 2022
Work to build a new road junction to a housing development in Penkridge get under way this Monday, October 31.
It will allow access to the development off the A449 Stafford Road, with the scheme expected to last six weeks.
The developer-funded scheme will see the creation of the junction on the north-western side of the road, including a right-hand turn lane for vehicles travelling in a southerly direction.
Temporary traffic signals will be in place throughout the works period and be manually operated during peak periods to minimise disruption. At times the northerly access to the two residential service roads each side of the A449 will need to be restricted. People will be able to access both from the southern entrances.
Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport David Williams said:
This scheme to build the new junction is scheduled to last for six weeks and unfortunately there will be some disruption due to the temporary signals, so we’d ask people to allow additional travel time.
It is developer-funded and will allow safe access to the new housing development. We’d like to thank people for their patience during the works period.”
