As a resident of Yoxall, your help would be appreciated in reporting such defects, on the email quoted above.

There are currently several stretches of road in the area which require attention. These are on the A515 between Newchurch and Yoxall and Bar Lane near Barton under Needwood.  

COMMUNITY SPEED WATCH

Community speed watch has resumed with permanent warning signs erected on the main approaches to the village. The average number of vehicles passing through the village during the periods of observations was 400 per hour, considerably higher than the number seen in March of 275 vehicles per hour. The easing of COVID restrictions has contributed.

If drivers are clearly exceeding the speed limit, or using mobile phones, details are taken and the incident is then advised by the CSW team to Police headquarters. If details correspond correctly, drivers may be issued with letters advising them of the observation.

Of the number of drivers passing through the village and significantly exceeded the 30 mph limit, C20% of drivers were in excess of 40 mph with the highest recorded at 49 mph. As far as HGV’s are concerned, the vast majority are passing through at about 30 mph.

 

 

 

A515 Update.

We remain concerned about the number of motorists speeding through the village, particularly at school times, along Sudbury Road and Main Street. Letters have been sent to the local County Councillors, Staffs Highways and the police advising them of our concerns.

Limited appetite shown from Staffs C.C. to support our concerns, save for assessing whether improvements are needed to the island at Alexandra Drive. We still await developments/actions.

A38 road closures.

No overnight closures are currently planned for the two weeks from 24th January.
