Drivers are being warned of delays as roadworks begin on a main route in and out of Lichfield.

Temporary traffic lights are being installed on the A5127 Burton Road in Streethay today (11th January) and will remain in place until March.

Carriageway improvements and power utility work will take place during this time.

One set of lights will be in place near the Oak Way entrance to the new Roman Heights estate, while another will be in place near the junction with Thompson Way and the A38 slip road.

  1. It’s frustrating that this work is being completed at the same time as the Southern bypass, which has resulted in the closure of Shortbutts Lane. Driving into Lichfield from the A38 you need to decide whether to sit in traffic in Streethay or London Road for the next 2 1/2 months.

  2. Agree with Adam. The planning and forward thinking from our council and planners is obviously non existent.

    Also this must be the 10th time in two years that this part of road in Streethay has been dug up.
