A515 – UPDATE

With the coronavirus epidemic affecting U.K. industry, the number of HCV's seen through the village of late has reduced. Night time activity had reduced significantly (-64%) as a result of the introduction of the turning bans with most hauliers complying with requests not to use the A515. Daytime reductions had fallen by a disappointing 24%, far short of what we were lead to believe would be achieved. The key aim of the turning bans is to reduce the number of high-sided HCV’s. We do not wish hamper local farmers and companies going about their business.

We have made representations to Highways England on behalf of local residents, pointing out that the A515 through Yoxall is not fit for purpose. We are awaiting the end of the current lockdown after which we are to meet a representative from Highways England to express our concerns.

Staffs CC are progressing an application to make the turning bans at Kings Bromley and Wood End Lane, Lichfield, permanent.

Staffs CC are also looking to install signage on the SCC road network for advanced signage on the Southbound  approach to the A515/Moreton Lane/Coton Lane roundabout in the current financial year.

Staffs CC are looking at design work on the A38 and A50 for advanced signage to advise HCV drivers of the turning bans on the A515, and will discuss proposals with Highways England. Due to current budget constraints, it will be the 2021/22 financial year before any installation is undertaken as the 2020/21 budget has been exhausted.
