Highways crews in Staffordshire will be carrying out improvements and resurfacing work on a busy road in Stone starting on Tuesday 1 August.
The scheme on the B5027 Lichfield Road will include improvements to drainage, kerbing, footway patching and road resurfacing, near Parkhouse Drive, Grange Road and Priory Road.
The work is expected to take around five weeks to complete and will include temporary traffic lights and road closures to make sure the works can be carried out safely. The road will be closed during the day for resurfacing on 14, 15, 16, 24 and 25 August. A signed diversion will be in place during the road closures.
The scheme is part of a wider £30 million investment by Staffordshire County Council in its roads over the next two years.
Talking about the scheme, David Williams, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, said: “This is another important scheme for the town that will help prolong the life of the road and deliver smoother journeys for motorists.
“Good roads are important for residents, businesses and of course the economy and its important that we keep them well maintained. This work, along with the major scheme at the Walton roundabout is part of a wider £30 million investment in our roads over the next two years.
“Crews will be doing their best to keep any disruption to a minimum and have scheduled the works during the school holidays when the roads are quieter. I’d like to thank people in advance for their patience while the work is carried out.”
