Work going well on multimillion pound Lichfield Southern Bypass

I mentioned this in my last post and gave a shout out to the crews who worked over the Christmas holiday to get work completed on a new rail bridge in Lichfield.

This was a fairly major engineering project and part of the multi-million-pound Lichfield southern bypass scheme which will help ease congestion and support economic development in the city. You can watch the installation of the rail bridge on time lapse video here.

Now, with the new bridge in place, the project team will be able to excavate underneath to connect the new section of road with the Falkland Road/Birmingham Road island. Once complete, the scheme will connect the A5127 Birmingham Road with the A5206 London Road.

This is another example of the county council and our partners delivering a major development project on schedule and is a hugely encouraging start to the new year.

I’m excited about 2020. Over the next twelve months we’re going to see significant progress with our main transport and business construction projects, namely the Stafford Western Access Route, i54 South Staffordshire western extension and Lichfield southern bypass. These are all vital projects for our future growth, bringing in investment, new homes, good quality jobs and improving connectivity.
