Plans to create a new junction as part of a £40m upgrade to a trunk road have been submitted.

The junction would serve housing and a new business park near the A50 west of Uttoxeter in Staffordshire.

The county council, which was proposing to carry out the scheme on behalf of the Highways Agency, said work was likely to start next year if plans were approved.

A second project may follow to install a junction and remove two roundabouts.

The council said if the first junction project to the west of Uttoxeter was approved and completed, highways engineers would then examine longer-term proposals for the second scheme to the east.
