Work to complete access to a new homes development near Rugeley takes place next week.
Access to the development, on the A51 Lea Hall Way, has been created as a roundabout junction north of Wheelhouse Road. Next week the junction will be resurfaced along that stretch. In order for the work to be carried out safely, this section of the A51 will be fully closed for seven days, 24 hours a day. Work will begin on Monday, July 17.
The £750,000 developer funded project has seen a new roundabout junction built next to the former power station land, with new footpath and cycleway also created. During the works period, traffic will be diverted along Wolseley Road, Western Springs Road, Horse Fair, Brereton Road and Brereton Hill.
Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet support member for highways and transport Helen Fisher said:
The work taking place next week on behalf of the developer will complete the new access junction off the A51. This development is providing much needed homes and will contribute to the county’s ongoing growth. We know this work will cause some disruption and so would ask people to allow additional time for their journeys. We’d like to thank people in advance for their patience.”
