A major £500,000 scheme to improve roads forming part of a junction of the A38 in East Staffordshire is due to be completed this weekend.
The scheme, delivered by Staffordshire County Council, has included the resurfacing of the B5016 Station Road at Barton-under-Needwood along with three roundabouts onto the A38. Kerbs and ironworks have also been replaced as part of the five-week project.
Helen Fisher, Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet support member for highways and transport explained that the project had gone to plan and the improvement work was on schedule to be completed on time.
“Our £500,000 investment at Barton Turns is part of our wider package of improvements right across the county. I’m sure motorists will notice a real difference and I would like to thank people for their patience while the work was carried out. The work was programmed in for the holiday period to minimise disruption and to ensure it was completed by the time most people were back at work and school.”
The scheme included some deep repair patches on the A38 overbridge surface that is maintained by the county council. Highways England, who maintain the bridge structure are planning works to the bridge next year, following which they will completely resurface the carriageway over the bridge.
