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

Staffs Highways have gone out to consultation regarding the introduction of waiting restrictions (Yellow Lines) at the above junction. Local residents have received details and a decision will be made in the next few weeks 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.

 

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. It should therefore be easier for the police to enforce the restrictions. That said, we have no intention of obstructing local, genuine businesses going about their business.

Please note" The slip road at Toyota island will be closed on 14th and 15th January to enable Highways England to install a new sign. With a noticeable increase in daytime traffic through Yoxall recently, we may all be further inconvenienced by this closure.

Proposed gravel extraction at Orgreave. 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 HCV drivers ignoring the turning ban we will report the registration and company name on the vehicles to the police who we have asked to be more proactive.
