Highways improvements in Codsall to start next week

Posted on Friday 17th May 2024

A major highways improvement scheme in Codsall will start on Monday 20 May.

The £200,000 scheme is being carried out by Staffordshire County Council and is part of a wider £50 million investment in the county’s roads over the next three years.

The work will take place on Elliotts Lane, from Yew Tree Gardens to the roundabout on Watery Lane, and at the junction of Bilbrook Road.  It will include reconstruction and resurfacing of the lane, along with repairs to the tactile crossings, kerbs and ironworks as required.  Crews will also be clearing away vegetation from the footpaths.

To ensure the work can be carried out safely and to minimise disruption, a combination of temporary traffic lights and road closures will be in operation.  From Monday 20 May until Friday 24 May, initial works will be carried out and temporary traffic lights will be in place from 9am to 3pm.

From Tuesday 28 May until Saturday 1 June, the road will be closed between 7.30am to 7.30pm for reconstruction works.  On Sunday 2 June, the road will also be closed between 7.30am and 10pm for resurfacing.  Between Monday 3 June and Tuesday 4 June, temporary traffic lights will continue to be in use between the hours of 9am to 3pm, while crews paint the new road markings.

A signed diversion will be in place during the closures, along with highways workers at either end of the closure, to offer assistance and help with access to residential properties and businesses.

Mark Deaville, Cabinet Member for Strategic Highways at Staffordshire County Council said:

“We know that good roads are essential for people and for our local economy, which is why we are investing more than £50 million in highways over the next three years.

“Elliotts Lane is a busy road that links Watery Lane and Wolverhampton Road that are heavily trafficked, which takes its toll on Elliotts Lane.

“Crews will be doing their best to keep disruption to a minimum, which will include carrying out some of the works during the May half term holiday when less traffic is expected. 

“I’m sure people will notice a real difference and I would like to thank people in advance for their patience while this vital work takes place.”
