Resurfacing work to take place at Lichfield junction

Work to resurface a Lichfield junction is due to start in the coming weeks.

The improvements are planned for the island at the A461 Sainte Foy Avenue and A5127 Birmingham Road.

The work will take place from 8.30am and 6pm on February 18, continuing between 9.30am and 3.30pm over the following three days.

Staffordshire County Council said the work – costing around £75,000 – has been scheduled during the school half-term break in a bid to minimise disruption.

Cllr Helen Fisher, Cabinet support member for highways and transport, 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.”

    Maybe if they made the HGVs use the proper routes ( bypasses and Trunk Roads) the SCC wouldn’t have to spend our money on roads that need frequent repairs because of them.

    Parts of Shortbutts Lane pavement have just been resurfaced.

    Yesterday and today I have seen very heavy lorries parked on the new pavement, no doubt damaging the work that has just been done. As someone is having their drive resurfaced

    The lorries also have been blocking one lane the road, making traffic queue before it can enter Shortbutts Lane.
