Work to improve roads in a Moorlands town is continuing – with a fortnight of night time road closures.

Staffordshire County Council are currently carrying out carriageway resurfacing works on Tape Street, High Street and Leek Road in Cheadle.

In a letter to residents, dated August 10, the authority has notified that there will be a “night time carriageway resurfacing along Leek Road and Tape Street, from near High Street to Well Street/Chapel Street roundabout” and that there will also be “night time carriageway patching along High Street.”

Amey Services Ltd, who are working with the county council, will be carrying out the works from Monday, August 24 during week nights.

In the letter to residents, site manager Peter Jewson, said: “The roads will be fully closed to traffic from 7pm to 6am each night with restricted vehicular access, diversions will be in place.

It is anticipated that the works will take approximately two weeks to complete.

However, in the event of poor weather or operational issues the works may take longer and run into a third week.”

Mr Jewson added: “We take care to make sure that work is completed with the minimum of disturbance to the local community but as with any major works, some traffic delays will occur.

In addition, please avoid parking vehicles on the road within the works extents at all times.”

Anyone with any questions or concerns about the works being carried out in Cheadle town centre, can make contact with the county council by using the online form at www.staffordshire.gov.uk/reportit.

  • Minimum disruption ? (having a laugh ?) I had NO notification - nonsinscal long diversions - a friend tried to visit me and followed a diversion that sent him to Blythe bridge ?? cars going the wrong way down Tape \Street after 5 mile runaround absolutely pathetic

  • It is a pity the council did not take the opportunity of improving access in Lid Lane. The situation here is absolutely dire, in particular during school term time. Traffic backing up through to The Birches. Surely, an accident waiting to happen. There is also the prospect of at least another 20 vehicles on the road vying for access to Lid Lane once the latest housing development off the Birches is completed. Something else to look forward to......I don’t think!
