Project Summary

Conceived to divert traffic away from the congested centre of the small town, the Rugeley Bypass aimed to significantly contribute to the social and economic regeneration of the area.


The scheme involved 2.2km of new bypass with footways and a cycle lane, on a raised embankment through the River Trent flood plain. The project has five major structures including two river bridges, a canal bridge and two rail under-bridges. The By-pass was funded and co-ordinated by Staffordshire County Council for the people of Rugeley.

The environmental success of the Rugeley Bypass project has been recognised with an ‘Excellent’ Whole Project Award from the Civil Engineering Environmental Quality and Award scheme (CEEQUAL).

Achieving a score of 88.8%, the Rugeley scheme has demonstrated high levels of environmental excellence and a commitment to improving sustainable performance in construction. This exceptional result for Rugeley acknowledges the excellent systems in place for promoting and improving sustainability on the site.
