A road in a Moorlands town which has been closed for two years has finally been re-opened. Prince George Street in Cheadle was temporarily closed after a wall collapsed following a landslide in September 2019, which resulted in several shops in the adjacent High Street to be, and still remain, closed.
A road in a Moorlands town which has been closed for two years has finally been re-opened.
Prince George Street in Cheadle was temporarily closed after a wall collapsed following a landslide in September 2019, which resulted in several shops in the adjacent High Street to be, and still remain, closed.
Since then residents in Prince George Street have raised lots of concerns about their street having been left temporarily closed for so long. Most concerns related to non-resident vehicles still entering the road and having to turn around in residents’ driveways – on occasions, causing damage to driveway walls.
There had also been lots of concern over the collapsed wall which had been left “unsafe” up until July this Summer when work was finally carried out to make the area safe.
Since then the road still remained temporarily closed, that is until on Friday (October 22) when it was finally reopened.
Staffordshire County councillor Mark Deaville said it was great news that Prince George Street was open.
He said: “This is great news, obviously keeping the public safe is our number one priority so it’s fantastic news that the road is now opened and the area has been made safe.
“It was a difficult situation involving different parties but by working together with our highways team and district council planning officers we were able to find a solution. Just in time for the half term holidays too.
“I’d like to thank everyone for their patience and cooperation during this time.”
