A515 – UPDATE

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

The CC is 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.

Thirdly the C.C. is 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.

We recently asked HE as to why diversion signs were erected with one at Kings Bromley directing traffic from the A515 down the A513. Where HCV’s are concerned, such action is illegal under the turning bans in place. We were told that it was  BT who had put up the temporary signs to which we responded by asking for them to be removed.

We were concerned to see that a planning application had been submitted to extract gravel at Orgreave. We pointed out that any lorries involved and using the A 513 And turning right at Kings Bromley Would be contravening the turning ban. If the application is approved and there are instances of NCV drivers ignoring the turning ban we will report the registration and company name on the vehicles to the police.
