A road resurfacing project in Burntwood is set to begin next week.

Staffordshire County Council will carry out the work on Cannock Road from 18th May.

The £26,000 upgrade is expected to take one week to complete.

A spokesperson said:

“The team will be replacing damaged kerbs and resurfacing the carriageway on the approaches to the controlled crossing near to Chase Road.

“There will be a temporary traffic closure in place during the resurfacing works but access to properties and businesses along the length of the works will be available throughout the job although may be restricted at times as we carry out these essential repairs outside each property.”

Staffordshire County Council spokesperson

Residents nearby are being asked not to park vehicles on the road during the day while works are ongoing.

  1. I think they should put more tarmac on the last road they did not finish am hoping it’s a different firm

  2. Shame they can’t remove some of the very old and worn out verges and change the to cycle lanes or even front of house parking? Too many parked cars

  3. I live in burntwood and have seen lots of roadworks but the best workers were the polish team in school lane,they didnt stop for breaks every hour or take 3 people to dig a hole,they worked none stop knocked on doors to explain what they were doing and even swept the road and footpaths before they left, i stood and watched them

  4. I live in chaseterrace Burntwood, our road has never been done, in the 17 years, that we have lived here , is is a disgrace, everyone keeps there bungalows , nice, and the road, is dreadful, that is Paget drive.
