More roadworks for Stone as roundabout junction is set for improvements

 

Work to improve a main road roundabout near Stone is set to begin next week.

Initial work to replace kerbs and improve the footways and drains close to the A34/A51 junction at Aston will begin on Tuesday August 28. This phase of the scheme will last for a month.

From October 1, road resurfacing will take place, with full closures being put in place on Brooms Road and the A51each night from 8pm to 6am. This phase of the scheme is due to end on November 2.

County Councillor Helen Fisher

Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport Helen Fisher said:

“The Aston roundabout on the A34 is a busy junction and so this is an important improvement scheme. Initial works will see kerbs replaced and improvements to drains and footways.

The main resurfacing works will take place at night in October so we’d ask people to bear this in mind and choose alternative routes if travelling into Stone on the A51 during these times. Work has been scheduled for night times to minimise disruption, but we’d like to thanks people for their patience during the works period.”
