A village resident has raised concerns over the speed of traffic on a busy Moorlands high street, expressing worries over the safety of pedestrians.

Veronica Griffiths has told the Times and Echo that she is unhappy with vehicle behaviour along Tean high street.

“My concern is someone is going to have an accident or knocked down,” she explained.

“They drive too fast. It’s been the last six months when it is getting worse with lorries, tractors and cars.”

A resident of the village, Veronica says she has to wait “a long while” to cross the road near the White Hart pub when walking from her home in the morning.

She added: “I can be standing a long while to cross to get my car out the car park.

“Someone said there is a crossing next to Co-Op but I’m not walking all the way up there then trying to cross New Road which is worse when traffic coming all ways.

“The noise in the house is getting worse but someone said it’s since they re-surfaced the road.

“I use the road every day but crossing it is terrible and the noise even scares myself.”

Speaking about what solution she would like to see, Veronica said: “I would 100 per cent love to see speed bumps or speed cameras.”

In response, David Williams, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport at Staffordshire County Council said: “Keeping our roads safe remains our priority and our roads continue to be amongst the safest in the country.

“We do listen to residents when they have concerns about road safety and our highways team meet regularly with the local member for the area.

“People can report any highways issues or concerns on the MyStaffs App or at www.staffordshire.gov.uk.”

  • I do sympathise with you because we live in Dilhorne Road Forsbrook and it's just the same, been complaining for years but nothing gets done, I'm waiting for a serious accident to happen.
