Road closure sign on the A5127
Road closure sign on the A5127

A planned road closure in Lichfield has been cancelled.

Staffordshire County Council had hoped to shut the carriageway to repair potholes on the A5127 in Streethay on tomorrow (18th June) and Sunday.

But Cllr David Williams, cabinet member for highways and transport, said the work had now been pushed back.

“Our highways crews were intending to carry out a number of pothole repairs in the area.

“Unfortunately due to the bad weather and heavy rain forecast over the weekend, the works now need to be rearranged.”

No new date has been confirmed for the repairs to take place.

  1. Perhaps they’ve decided to close the whole of Lichfield instead for pothole repairs or even complete resurfacing. We certainly need it.

  2. Obviously if the weather showing an impact on road repairs it means nothing gonna get done in the near future to the roads .

  3. Hello , I’ve seen people fishing in the potholes in burntwood , we’re still waiting for the left over tarmac from lichfield looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer. lol

  4. Bs – hope they put the fish in the canal when they catch them!
    Re the potholes. Given the short length of time the repairs last, the raised or sinking ironwork left after resurfacing work which doesn’t last long either one can only guess that the council either aren’t paying for good quality work or aren’t monitoring the quality of the work they/we are paying for.

  5. Absolute joke just blame the weather to not get the job done, we pay hard earned money to drive on the worst potholed roads in the midlands, how about getting the job done like back in the old days instead of a bodge job that will only last 2 weeks if that!!! M6 toll island Burntwood is riddled with craters, island by the junction pub chasetown has had massive craters for years, chase road/ new road island craters. The list goes on, I’ve reported these but they say not bad enough, just pathetic excuses, I’m deeply disappointed in the whole system, but you keep taking our money
