Proposed Road Safety Improvements – Bramshall Road/Stone Road, Bramshall

Our Ref: CDL4262/01

Dear Sir or Madam,

As part of its ongoing review of the safety of the highway network, Staffordshire County Council (working in partnership with Amey) are proposing to provide road safety improvements along Bramshall Road/Stone Road, between Ivinson Way and the Railway Crossing

These improvements are proposed following S106 monies being secured from new developments within the village and DHP prioritisation from the County Councillor.

The proposals comprise of: 
Speed limit reduction on the approaches to the village from 60 mph to 40 mph.
Improved gateway markings at the village entry. 
Installation of two buildout traffic calming features to create a priority system for traffic in the village.

The anticipated start date for the scheme is late autumn 2018 and works will last for approximately 4 weeks. This will follow the required Traffic Regulation Order, TRO, process.

Please see the attached drawing (D6665T/R00/04 – C0) for details of the scheme.

We are undertaking a Traffic Regulation Order, TRO, consultation in order to obtain the necessary support to progress the scheme further. If appropriate, could you forward your support and any comments in writing to the above address by 17th August 2018. If no response is received by this date then support for the scheme will be assumed.

Please use the response slip below, to contact Staffordshire County Council.

New Councillor for Uttoxeter Rural Parish Council

The Chair of Uttoxeter Rural Parish Council is delighted to announce a new Councillor to the Parish Council.

Mr Matt Slater, from Bramshall, was coopted onto the Parish Council on 3rd July 2018.


A552 Closures – A522 will be completely closed to all vehicles, just west of Tunnicliffe Way, 24-hours-a-day from 5am Monday, July 16 to Friday, September 28.

Staffordshire County Council has updated the Parish Council on the road closure below:

With the new bridge in place and slip roads integrated into the dual carriageway the A50 Project A scheme is nearing completion.
One of the final, big steps is the removal of the south embankment which raises the A522 up to the ‘old’ bridge which crosses the A50.
Workers will lower the area by approximately 20 feet, to allow the installation of new drains and utilities. We will also complete the outstanding stretch of the new A522 carriageway, footpaths and street lighting to connect it to the new junction and bridge across the A50.

To do this the A522 will be completely closed to all vehicles, just west of Tunnicliffe Way, 24-hours-a-day from 5am Monday, July 16 to Friday, September 28.

The slip roads, ‘on’ and ‘off’ the A50, from the A522 New Road roundabout will also be closed at the same time.
We have deliberately scheduled this essential phase of the project to coincide with both the summer holiday closure of the JCB Heavy Products factory and the school summer holidays when traffic levels will be lower. There is no doubt this will cause some inconvenience and I appreciate your patience while we carry out this important work.
Diversions
Diversions will be clearly signposted and maps showing the alternative routes are available here or by going to www.staffordshire.gov.uk and searching for ‘A50’.
Traffic travelling west on the A522 towards Tean will be diverted on to the A50 at the B5030 McDonald’s roundabout and then leave the A50 at the new junction, use the new bridge and re-join the A522.
Traffic travelling east on the A522 towards Uttoxeter will be diverted on to the eastbound A50 and at the B5030 roundabout those wanting Uttoxeter town centre will be directed left towards the A518 The Dove Way.
Pedestrians will still be able to travel in both directions by following a short, signposted diversion between Tunnicliffe Way and The Parks, which passes through Torrance Grove and along a temporarily lit and resurfaced public footpath. Cyclists can also use the route but are asked to dismount on the public footpath.
Access to the Shell petrol station, which stands a few hundred yards west of the B5030 roundabout on the westbound carriageway will be maintained at all times.
Other work
There are also overnight closures of the A50 planned for the nights of:
Friday, July 6th, 8pm to 5.30am: the westbound carriageway will be closed and the eastbound open as usual;
Saturday, July 7th, 8pm to 5.30am: the eastbound carriageway will be closed and the westbound open;
Saturday, July 14, and Sunday July 15, 8pm to 5.30am: closed in both directions.
During the closures of the A50, we will put a fully signposted diversion route in place, suitable for all vehicles including HGVs. Highways England will put advance notices warning of the closures on its wider A-road and motorway network to encourage traffic to take alternative routes on the nights of the closures.
Traffic heading west will be diverted northwards from the A50 on to the B5030 for a few hundred yards to the roundabout with the A518. Traffic will turn right there, cross back over the A50 along Dove Way and continue on the A518 clockwise around Uttoxeter and follow the road towards Stafford. Vehicles will then follow the A51 and A34 towards Stoke-on-Trent and then on to the A500 and A50. The route is reversed from the west.
