Kidsgrove on the right road

Liverpool Road Oct 2015 low res copyRoads in the centre of Kidsgrove are undergoing £105,000 improvements. Staffordshire County Council’s highways team are resurfacing part of the A50 Liverpool Road and a section of the B5371 The Avenue, in addition to repairing kerbs and pavements. Work on the seven-week project began on Monday, September 28 and set to be completed by Thursday November 12. Temporary traffic lights will be in place until October 12. Resurfacing of The Avenue will take place overnight (7pm to 7am) on Tuesday October 27, when a section of the road will be closed at the A50 Liverpool Road junction.

Night time closures will be put in place at the same location and the same times on October 28, October 29, November 2 and November 9. The road will be closed for a 150m section each side of The Avenue with diversions in place. People will be able to access properties though people should expect some delays. Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet support member for highways and transport Mark Deaville said: “The A50 Liverpool Road and the Avenue are the central roads in Kidsgrove and so this is an important job. Resurfacing the roads will bring long-term improvements for local people and businesses. This is a seven-week scheme and while we are putting the road closures in place overnight, we would ask people to allow additional travel time and thank people for bearing with us.”
