Overnight works to the A460 Wolverhampton Road in Saredon, South Staffordshire, will get under way from Monday.

It will shut from 8pm to 5am with a diversion route put in place, one for standard vehicles and another for high-sided ones.

The works will see the cleansing and repair of any damaged drainage systems, and the replacement of signs and barriers where required.

It is a part of Staffordshire County Council’s £5.2 million investment into improving eight major gateways into the county’s towns.

Councillor David Williams, cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “The latest part of our investment in Staffordshire’s roads will see the A460, a major gateway into South Staffordshire and Wolverhampton, resurfaced. To minimise disruption for commuters as much as possible, our crews will be carrying out overnight works for two weeks.

“These works are all part of our £5.2 million investment into some of the major gateways into Staffordshire. Already, a number of works have been completed, and we will be looking to start more in the coming months to provide smoother journeys for people who live and work in our county.”
