A community leader is pleased that permanent traffic lights, which he has been campaigning for, have finally been installed at a busy crossroads in the Moorlands.

The highways improvements at Freehay Crossroads, near Cheadle, which have been carried out by Staffordshire County Council, has seen the installation of permanent four-way traffic lights, carriageway resurfacing and improved signs.

Temporary traffic lights were installed at the junction by the county council in July 2018 following concerns from local residents about road safety. Additionally, in 2019, the speed limit on each approach to the junction was also reduced to 30mph.

Work on installing the permanent lights began on Monday, October 4 and have now been completed.

Cheadle town and district councillor Richard Alcock has been campaigning for the permanent traffic lights since the temporary ones were put in place.

He told the Times & Echo: “I am pleased that they have finally been done, and they have made a good job of them.

It took a while and lots of campaigning but we finally got there. I am very pleased.

I hope it saves lots of accidents from happening there.”
