MOTORISTS face delays during roadworks in Stafford which will last for six weeks.

An improvement scheme on one of the town’s main junctions will begin this Monday ( June 2).

The A518/A34 Lammascote Road/Queensway gyratory island will be completely resurfaced. Work will involve replacing kerbs and drains in addition to the resurfacing. During the day there will be lane closures and from Monday, June 23, to Tuesday, July 8, there will be night time road closures on week nights between 7pm and 7am with diversions in place.

Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for economy and infrastructure Mark Winnington said: “The Lammascote Road/Queensway gyratory island is one of Stafford’s main and busiest junctions and is in need of improving. This is a big job which we’re investing £300,000.The scheme will provide lasting improvements but will take six weeks to complete. Resurfacing work has been scheduled to take place overnight so that we can minimise disruption. We appreciate that there will be some delays and would ask people to bear with us while work is carried out.”
