A5 | Staffordshire | Westbound | Vehicle Fire | Road Closed
The A5 in Staffordshire is closed westbound between the M6 Toll / A5148 (Wall Island) and the A461 (Muckley Corner) due to a lorry fire. Staffordshire Police, Fire & Rescue and crews from Highways England are on scene. The lorry was transporting wood and the load may need to be removed for safety, in addition there is a fuel spillage in the road.
Motorists are being diverted and should follow the solid diamond symbol marked on local road signs. This will take traffic north on the A5148 and at the next junction exit to take the A51 north in to Lichfield. Turn left on to A5127 Birmingham Road and continue on this road to the roundabout with the A461. Take that first exit (towards Walsall). Follow the A461 south to rejoin the A5 at Muckley Corner.
PLEASE NOTE: There is a height restriction of 14 foot or 4.2 metres on this route so all vehicles above this height should plan ahead and use alternative routes (such as the M42 and M6 or the A38 and A50).
