£50 million boost for Staffordshire Highways over the next three years



An extra £50 million will be invested in maintaining and improving Staffordshire’s highways over the next three years, alongside a total of £53M being spent on a range of major projects, vital road improvements and general road maintenance in 24/25.

 

The extra investment will see:

 

  • 34 road reconstruction schemes planned to be being completed between 2024/25 to 2026/27, with a further 9 schemes identified subject to Network North funding including the resurfacing of junctions and roundabouts at key locations in the county

  • More than 450 preventative carriageway maintenance schemes, totalling 1.5 million square metres in 2024/25

  • £2.75 million of work to repair highway drainage

 

David Williams, Staffordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport said: “Our huge road network is vitally important for those who live and work in our county, but keeping it in a good state of repair is an ongoing and costly challenge. This is why we will be investing more money into repairing major roads, vital local improvements, and general road maintenance. This investment will allow us to repair and maintain more roads, and keep our network in a good state of repair for residents and commuters.”

 

The county council has also announced that an extra £30 million will be invested in highway maintenance from 2025/26 to 2026/27.

 

Key schemes planned for the extra £30 million include:

 

  • A518 Weston Road, Beaconside, Stafford

  • A520 Cheadle Road/Main Road, Wetley Rocks

  • A5187 Station Road, Stafford

  • A4091 Coleshill Street, Tamworth

  • C0006 Wolverhampton Road, Codsall, South Staffs

  • A5121 Derby Road (Phase 2), Burton

  • A34 Knutton Lane, Newcastle-Under-Lyme

  • A0515 Lichfield Road, Kings Bromley, Lichfield

  • B4154 Walsall Road, Norton Canes, Cannock

  • B5369 Dimsdale Parade West, Newcastle-Under-Lyme

 

David added: “As we have seen in previous years, this extra investment will deliver major benefits in key areas over the next two years. However, there is still more to be done, and we continue to lobby central Government for funding to keep Staffordshire’s roads in the condition we expect and ensure local communities and businesses can feel the benefits of an improved network.”

 

Full details of the investment are available here and will be recommended to the county council’s Cabinet for approval on March 20.
