TRAVEL UPDATE - 4-way lights in place as part of Upton improvement scheme

TEMPORARY traffic lights are in place at the junction of the A38 and A4104 in Upton-upon-Severn.

The 4-way lights were installed yesterday and will be in place for ten days.

It is part of the Upton Improvement Scheme which is aimed at enabling the traffic to flow more freely.

Worcestershire County Council Highways has urged drivers to be aware of the latest signalling and to find alternative routes if necessary.




The current A38/A4104 staggered junction is to be replaced with a four-arm roundabout as part of the improvements.

The A38 is a single carriageway road, which runs to the M50 Motorway and Tewkesbury in the south and Worcester in the north.


The A4104 is also a single carriageway road, which runs to Pershore to the north-east and to Upton-upon-Severn and Little Malvern to the west.

The route is important for users travelling from the M5/M50 Motorways and provides access to destinations such as the ‘Three Counties Showground’ and the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), as well as a number of events usually held within Upon-upon-Severn and the surrounding area throughout the year.
