Improvement works to the A50 at Uttoxeter. The works will take place in two phases, being delivered by Staffordshire County Council on behalf of Highways England.

M1 J24 Improvement 10 April 2015
Improvement of the A50 approach to J24 of the M1, currently a simple roundabout which forms a significant bottleneck.
The improvement will provide a path through the roundabout, controlled by traffic signals, to allow A50 to M1 South traffic to avoid the roundabout altogether and join the M1 at junction 23A.
