Junction improvements set to ease access to business park

Work to improve a main road junction to ease access to a business park near Eccleshall begins today (Monday April 23).

The £650,000 scheme will see the A519 Newcastle Road junction with Sturbridge Lane improved to ease turning and improve safety for traffic accessing Raleigh Hall Industrial Estate. Work is being paid for by the estate owner.

While work is being carried out there will be two way temporary traffic lights. The improvements are scheduled to be completed by July 20.

Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet support member for highways and transport Helen Fisher said: “Raleigh Hall is a busy industrial estate and is another important contributor into Staffordshire’s economy.

“We want to support its businesses and improve traffic flow to the site. These junction improvements will make turning off or onto the A519 safer and improve traffic flow along the road.

“Better access to industrial sites is important to business and also to the communities around them. There will be some delays due to the temporary signals so we’d like to thank people for their patience while work is carried out.”
