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.  

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.

HADLEY STREET AND SANDPITTS LANE.

Drainage repairs have been carried out on the verge area but contractors have identified that there is a broken section of pipe under the road. Further work is to be undertaken as soon as possible.

ROAD CLOSURE IN CHURCH LANE, NEWBOROUGH.

Church Lane  will be closed from 8.00 a.m. on 12th April to 17.00 on 16th April for road repairs. Diversions ill be signposted.

 

  • 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 have received a response from HS2 and have been assured that the gravel lorries passing through the village are not theirs. We are also liaising with Kings Bromley and Draycott in the Clay Parish Councils.
