Resurfacing works will be taking place on an East Staffordshire road next week.

The scheme on Tutbury Road, Needwood will see highways crews resurfacing the road, installing new drainage, and replacing damaged kerbs where necessary.

Works will take place between Burton Road (Five Lanes End Roundabout) and the junction of Hanbury Road and Anslow Road.

Highways crews will be on site from Monday (February 19), and a full road closure will be in place to ensure the safety of the public and work force. A fully-signed diversion route will be in place, and access will be maintained for residents and businesses.

The scheme will cost around £550,000 to complete, and is part of a wider £6 million investment into works in the Burton area.

Added to this, the county council will carry out at least an extra £50 million worth of repairs and essential maintenance of the 6,000 kilometres of roads across Staffordshire, on top of any grant given by the government. This includes more road resurfacing schemes and getting potholes repaired more quickly.

Staffordshire County Council Cabinet Member for Highways David Williams said:

“The latest scheme for Burton will see a full resurfacing of this road, which will make a big difference to local residents and businesses.

“This is all part of our wider maintenance programme, which will see many more roads resurfaced over the coming year. Good roads are important for residents, motorists and of course the economy, so it is important to invest in keeping them safe and well maintained. 

“These works have been carefully coordinated with other works in the area to minimise disruption. Even so, some disruption will be inevitable, and we thank everyone or their patience during these works.”

The works will take around 5 weeks to complete.
