The A34 between Stafford and Stone will be closed in both directions overnight on Wednesday, August 10, for the construction of a new roundabout outside the giant new Pets At Home site.

Between 8pm and 6am both directions of the A34 between Yarlet Lane and the Redhill roundabout will be closed, with motorists being diverted via A51, A518, A513 & vice versa.

Access to Redhill Business Park will be maintained from the Redhill roundabout northbound only, with vehicles exiting it needing to go southbound. Access to all other properties will be along the southbound carriageway from the A51 junction.

Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport, David Williams, said: "This is a major road project but vital in providing adequate access to the development and maintaining good traffic flow to traffic on the A34.

"Next week’s closure has been scheduled overnight and at a quieter period on the network, and a range of works coordinated during the closure to minimise disruption."

He added: “We’d like to remind people travelling on this route during the closure to allow additional time and would like to thank people for their patience."

All highway works are due to be completed in summer 2023, however, the site will open with half a roundabout initially ready for when the building is handed over and becomes operational.
