Urgent roadworks in Uttoxeter


A section of the A518 Derby Road in Uttoxeter is set for urgent closure following an underground electricity cable fault in the area.
One customer is currently without power, and the work is necessary to restore supply to the property and ensure the reliability of the network in the area.
Simon Roper, WPD Team Manager for Uttoxeter, said: “In order to carry out the repair safely, the section of road between the Bull roundabout and the Dove Fields/Dove Walk roundabout will close at around 6pm tonight, where contractors on behalf of WPD will work throughout the night. A diversion will be in place along The Dove Way A518 and the Uttoxeter bypass. WPD has liaised with the local Highways Authority to agree the time of the work and diversion to reduce the impact on commuters.”
It is hoped that the work will be completed overnight.
