Major resurfacing project to begin

Posted on Friday 27th January 2023

Major resurfacing work to a key junction near Wolverhampton is due to begin next week.

Overnight works to the A460 Wolverhampton Road in Saredon, South Staffordshire will take place from Monday 30 January, and will last two weeks.

As well as resurfacing the road, the works will see the cleansing and repair of any damaged drainage systems, and the replacement of signs and barriers where required.

Due to the nature of the works and where they will be carried out, the road will need to be closed overnight from 8pm to 5am.

Signs will be clearly placed to let motorists know, and two diversion routes will be in place, one for standard vehicles and one for high-sided vehicles.

The works are part of Staffordshire County Council’s £5.2 million investment into improving eight major gateways into the county’s towns.

County Councillor David Williams, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport said:

“The latest part of our investment in Staffordshire’s roads will see the A460 a major gateway into South Staffordshire and Wolverhampton resurfaced. To minimise disruption for commuters as much as possible, our crews will be carrying out overnight works for two weeks.

“These works are all part of our £5.2 million investment into some of the major gateways into Staffordshire. Already, a number of works have been completed, and we will be looking to start more in the coming months to provide smoother journeys for people who live and work in our county.”
