Town centre transport improvement scheme moves to next phase

Posted on Thursday 25th April 2024
Cannock LUF 1 Feb 1

A regeneration project to improve roads, walking and cycling routes in Cannock town centre is progressing with a finish date scheduled for May 5.

The scheme involves improving the Beecroft Road roundabout, including A34 Ringway and Park Lane. This includes installing a new road surface, new pedestrian guard rails, kerbs and footway repairs.

Surfacing of the roundabout will begin this Monday April 29. All work on the Beecroft Road roundabout phase is taking place overnight between 7.30pm to 6am to minimise disruption. During these times, the A34 will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Overnight closures will also be needed on Park Road and Beecroft Road during the works period.

The roundabout scheme follows the completion of work to create new shared cycle routes, upgraded crossing points and widened footways in Church Street and Ringway, as well as a new link from Allport Road to Beecroft Road car park. The scheme complements the wider regeneration plans for the town.

People travelling through Cannock town centre while work is taking place are being advised to allow additional journey time.

Staffordshire County Council’s assistant director for highways James Bailey said:

This scheme is complementing the wider regeneration of Cannock town centre – improving its roads and creating new routes for cyclists and pedestrians.

We know there has been considerable disruption since works began in January and would again like to thank people for their patience and understanding. By carrying out this phase of works overnight, we can keep disruption to a minimum."
