Amanda Milling, Member of Parliament for Cannock Chase, and local County Councillor Johnny McMahon, have welcomed a £220,000 project to resurface Five Ways Island in Heath Hayes.
The busy island, which serves traffic from across the district, will be resurfaced, with works scheduled to begin on the 14th August.
Work will be carried out during the night to minimise any disruption during the process and will take an estimated two weeks to complete. The main resurfacing works will start on the evening of 21st August and are scheduled to last for six nights.
Amanda Milling MP said: “Five Ways Island has been one of the real problem spots which I have repeatedly raised with Staffordshire County Council as being in need of resurfacing. It is full of potholes and the resurfacing is much needed and long overdue. I am very pleased that it is being resurfaced and I am sure many residents will welcome the improvements once the work is complete.”
County Councillor Johnny McMahon said: “This island is a very busy route, especially in rush hour. The works will ensure that the island is repaired and brought back to a standard local road users expect.”
