Glascote Road closure causes traffic chaos

Monday, 28th January 2019

COMUTERS in Tamworth face days of traffic misery after the announcement that a main road is to be closed completely.

Emergency repairs being carried out by South Staffs Water mean that a complete closure of the road will be needed.

The repairs are being carried out to the B5000 Glascote Road, causing the closure between the Sheepcote Lane / Marlborough Way roundabout and the canal bridge by the Co-op.

In an email sent to a local School by South Staffs Water,  it says the works could take up to a week.

Workers have been at the location for a number of days but the traffic has been controlled by temporary traffic lights which have caused long delays.

Due to the complete closure however, traffic is being diverted a long surrounding roads, which is also causing delays in the area of Bolehall and Glascote.
