  • REPAIRS TO ROADS AND PAVEMENTS IN YOXALL.

It is important that defects in roads, pavements and gullies are reported. The on-line system is easy to use. Go to https://staffordshire.gov.uk/web/reportfault


WAITING RESTRICTIONS AT THE JUNCTION OF HADLEY STREET AND SUDBURY ROAD.

Staffs Highways have completed the consultation regarding the introduction of waiting restrictions (Yellow Lines) at the above junction. Decision to be made shortly following local resident input. Thereafter, AMEY, the preferred contractor will undertake the work.  

DEFECTS IN MAIN STREET AND KING STREET.

Parishioners will have noticed a number of markings around drains and cracks at the above locations. These are the result of a recent  monthly inspection. Whilst no date has been set for completing the remedial works which will require a traffic management system to be out into operation, the necessary permits and permissions will in the first instance need to be applied for. 

CURB REPAIRS AT TOWN HILL.

Repairs are to be carried out to the “dropped” curb at Town Hill whereby a full curb will replace the existing curb. The improvements will prevent water flowing int9 the entrance at Goose Green during periods of inclement weather.

PARKING IN SAVEY LANE.

A scheme is being considered to improve parking in Savey Lane. Staffs Highways have been asked to look at putting a hard surface in place of part of the "soft" area in the Lane. Funding however is extremely tight. Various options for funding are being considered.

 

  • A515 UPDATE.

Early warning signage has now been installed at the Moreton Lane roundabout in Draycott in the Clay,  informing HGV drivers of the turning bans and Highways England will install similar signage on the A38 and A50 in 2021. 

Following a recent accident which damaged the corner of the Golden Cup we asked Staffs CC Highways to look into the possibility of installing a safety barrier, similar to those outside the school. Staffs Highways did not consider a barrier appropriate due to the width of the pavement.

Concern continues regarding the number of gravel lorries passing through the village. Our suspicions were confirmed when we noticed a HS2 sticker on a Tarmac lorry. We also noticed a lorry with a The Dirt Mover logo on the vehicle and carrying gravel, turning left on to the A513 at Kings Bromley in contravention of the turning ban.

We have been in contact with the HS2 Helpdesk to express our concerns, particularly as we were assured that HS2 lorries would not come through the villages and the local Primary School is adjacent to the road, giving rise to danger for parents and children. Despite promises that we would receive a suitable response, nothing has been forthcoming. We will now write formally. We will also be liaising with Kings Bromley and Draycott in the Clay Parish Councils.

A section of the A38 between Alrewas and Barton Turns will be closed overnight from 10.00 p.m. to 6.00 a.m - Northbound from 12th to 15th March and Southbound from 19th to 22nd March meaning that traffic will be routed along the A515. This is to allow gas pipes to be upgraded.
