25.05.23 – M6 Toll Repairs, Sodexo Team at UHNM win RoSPA Gold Award
Written by Hitmix Local News on 24 May 2023
A major roundabout near the M6 Toll which is used by many Staffordshire residents will be undergoing a £350,000 refurbishment.
The A5195 Burntwood Way roundabout, at the junction of T6 on the M6 Toll, will undergo a two-week resurfacing programme in June.
As well as resurfacing, the scheme will include reinstating road markings, resettling kerbs, clearing footpaths and gulley cleaning. Crews will also be making the most of road closures to patch defects along Burntwood Way.
Crews will mainly work during the day, but will also be coordinating their works with a planned overnight closure of the M6 Toll junction.
The £350,000 is all part of a £30 million investment Staffordshire County Council is making into roads across the whole of Staffordshire over the next two years.
The Sodexo team at our local hospitals, the University Hospitals of North Midlands, have been awarded the ninth consecutive gold award at the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards.
