Road improvement scheme set to begin on main Stafford route

An improvement scheme at a main road junction in Stafford is set to begin this Sunday.

Resurfacing, drain and kerb repairs will be carried out at the junction of the A34 Lichfield Road and Riverway. The main resurfacing work will be carried out overnight during the week beginning Monday March 20. All work is due to finish by Monday March 27.

From this Sunday, the southbound lane of Riverway will be closed for a 100 metre stretch from the A34 junction. Temporary traffic lights will also be in operation on the A34 Lichfield Road. Resurfacing work will take place between 7pm and 7am from Monday March 20 to Friday March 24. During these times Lichfield Road will be closed completely for 100 metres each side of the Riverway junction, while Riverway will be closed completely for 100 metres from the junction.

Staffordshire County Council’s highways leader Mark Deaville said:

Lichfield Road is a busy route into Stafford and we’re keen to carry out these essential improvements as quickly as possible. We’re carrying out the main resurfacing work overnight to minimise disruption. It will also be necessary to close a short section of the southbound section of Riverway. We’d urge people to allow additional time for their journeys if travelling in the area and plan alternative routes if possible. We would like to thank people in advance for their patience.”

The county council is investing £114,000 in the improvements.
