Highways investment to benefit motorists in Lichfield

Motorists in Lichfield can look forward to smoother journeys thanks to highways improvements due to start on Sunday 18 February.

Staffordshire County Council’s Highways teams will be carrying out resurfacing work to the island and approach roads that serve the A461 Sainte Foy Avenue and A5127 Birmingham Road.

The improvements are expected to take around four days to complete with crews carrying out the work between 8.30am and 6pm on Sunday 18 February  and 9.30am to 3.30pm over the following three days.  The work has been scheduled in during the half-term break to minimise disruption to the travelling public.  The cost of the scheme is around £75,000 and during the works there will be a series of signed diversions in place along the outer roads to the Town Centre.

Helen Fisher, Cabinet Support Member for Highways and Transport at Staffordshire County Council said:

“We are committed to keeping the county’s main routes in good order and I’m sure the investment will be welcome news by people who use the road and roundabout.  Our highways teams will be doing their upmost to make sure the work is done as efficiently as possible and to minimise disruption to motorists which is why we are doing the work during the school holiday.  I would like to thank people in advance for their co-operation and patience while the work is being carried out.”
