The A521 Uttoxeter Road in Blythe Bridge, near Stoke-on-Trent, will be closed both sides of the level crossing from Sunday 8th April 2018 for approximately a week while emergency gas works take place. Engineers will be tracing and repairing a gas leak near the level crossing. A diversion route will be in place via the B5029 Grindley Lane, A50 Uttoxeter Road, A521 Uttoxeter Road.
Access will be maintained to homes and businesses within the road closure and to Caverswall Road. Pedestrian access will be maintained to Blythe Bridge Station and every effort will be made to maintain access to the station car park for vehicles. The work is expected to take a week but we will make every effort to finish it as soon as possible. Businesses will be open as usual in the village and train services will not be affected. We will keep people updated
