Main Burton road set for daytime closures due to utility works

Posted on Thursday 21st March 2024

A short section of Shobnall Road in Burton will undergo a series of daytime closures over the next fortnight due to planned utility works.

Gas, electric and sewer repair works will all take place on the section close to the A38 underpass from Monday March 25.

Daytime closures will be in place from 8am until 6pm each weekday up to April 5 and 8am until 1pm on Saturday March 30. It will be open on Easter Sunday. From Monday April 8 to Wednesday April 11 temporary signals will be in place for road resurfacing.

While these are not county council works, its highways network team has worked hard to ensure the three companies’ work is coordinated, during the Easter Holidays, to minimise disruption. This is not the same section of road which was resurfaced by the county council last year.

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

We’d like to make people aware of daytime closures on Shobnall Road due to these planned and coordinated utility works.

These are not county council works, but our network management team has worked hard to ensure that all three companies are working together at the same time, during the Easter school holidays to minimise disruption.

We know there are various road improvement schemes taking place in and around Burton at the moment and apologise for any inconvenience. We’d like to reassure people that these have been carefully planned and coordinated and that we will continue to provide updates on progress and changes to traffic management.”
