A50 closed from 8pm tonight until 1st October

Dear Residents

The Parish Council would like to remind you all of the A50 closures that start tonight from McDonalds roundabout to Blythe Bridge.

The diversion routes are being displayed on all motorway signs but traffic is likely to be very heavy.

The diversion route will be the same for vehicles travelling in both directions. From the East, traffic will be diverted northwards from the A50 at Uttoxeter on to the B5030 for a few hundred yards to the roundabout with the A518. Traffic will turn right there, cross back over the A50 along The Dove Way and continue on the A518 clockwise around Uttoxeter and follow the road towards Stafford. Vehicles will then follow the A51 and A34 towards Stoke-on-Trent, before joining the A500 and then the A50 to Blythe Bridge. The route is reversed from the West.

The Shell petrol station, which stands on the westbound carriageway a few hundred yards west of the B5030 roundabout, will open as normal and access will be maintained at all times via the A522.

The current work to remove the south embankment and lower the level of the road by 20ft is progressing well and will be completed before the A50 closure begins. Diversions remain in place and maps showing the alternative routes are available here or by going to and searching for ‘A50’.
