Early works continue on main Stafford road ahead of major improvement scheme

Posted on Friday 1st March 2024

Early works taking place ahead of a major improvement scheme on a main Stafford road continue on March 4.

The investigative works on the A34 between Weeping Cross and Queensville are needed to carefully plan the full scheme of improvements on the road later this year. This will include full resurfacing together with new cycleways, pedestrian improvements and upgraded crossings from Weeping Cross to the junction with the A449 roundabout.

From this Monday March 4 to Friday March 22, temporary traffic management will be needed to carry out these works safely. Two-way traffic signals will be operated manually on Radford Bank near Meadow Ridge on weekdays only between 9.30am and 3pm. The left-hand lane at the top of Radford Bank to turn onto the A513/Baswich Lane will also be closed throughout this period.

The scheme is part of a £9million package of improvements through the Government’s Levelling Up Fund, which will see new walking and cycling routes along the A34 in Stafford and Cannock in addition to road repairs.

Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport David Williams said:

The A34 project will bring considerable long-term improvements along this stretch of the road for cyclists, pedestrians and motorists, with the main scheme getting under way later this year.

Investigative works are needed ahead of the main scheme and unfortunately some temporary traffic management is necessary. The signals will only be in operation off-peak to minimise disruption and manually operated so traffic flow can be monitored.

We’d ask that people allow additional travel time if travelling on this section of road during the works period and apologise for any inconvenience.”

Street lighting replacement started in January.
