Main Staffordshire route to close overnight for homes development junction works
A main Staffordshire road will close overnight this Sunday, June 6, for junction works providing access to a housing development.
The A34 Stone Road just north of Stafford will close in both directions between the A513 Beaconside roundabout and Whitgreave Lane between 8 pm and 6 am. The closure is needed to work can be carried out at the junction of Redhill Business Park, where access will be provided to the new homes development to the east of the A34.
A signed diversion will be in place via A51, A518, A513. During the overnight closure, access to both Redhill Business Park and properties along the section will be maintained. Any traffic going to Redhill Business Park during the closure period will be escorted northbound on the A34. All other traffic needing to access properties will need to travel southbound from the A51 roundabout. The scheme is being funded by the developer.
After the overnight closure, traffic management will be in place from June 7 to July 2, where access to the business park will be northbound only, with any exiting traffic needing to go northbound.
There will be further night-time closures on Thursday 1 July from 8 pm until 6 am on Friday 2 July and a southbound overnight closure on Friday, July 9. There will also be closures needed in the autumn, with dates to be confirmed.
Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport David Williams said:
The Redhill junction will provide access to the new housing development east of the A34 and for this work to be carried out safely a series of overnight closures will be needed. Access to the business park and properties along the road will be maintained throughout. This scheme will last until December as it’s a major development, so we’d like to thank people for their patience while work takes place.”
