Highways improvements to support new Designer Outlet for Staffordshire

Retail development in Cannock

MacArthurGlen Designer Outlet Cannock

This month we saw the start of a major highways project that will provide access to a new £160 million retail development at Mill Green in Cannock.

On-site construction of the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet started this summer and when it opens in 2020 it will be a huge draw for the county and create around 1,000 jobs for the local area. It’s a really exciting project, and great news not only for people in Cannock but the county as a whole.

As part of the overall development, McArthurGlen has committed £15 million towards the improvements which will be key to the success of the outlet. The highways works are absolutely essential. When the outlet opens we will see a significant increase in traffic around the area and this scheme will provide suitable access to the site and improve traffic flow on the surrounding roads.

It’s a major project, and as you can imagine, a huge amount of planning has gone into the works. Part of the improvements will be the construction of a temporary road to ensure there is no closure of the A460 while a new underpass for the outlet is built.

The works are expected to take around 72 weeks to complete and you can keep up to date with the project by signing up for regular email updates. You can do this here.
