Newcastle street set for New Year improvements

A Newcastle street will undergo a £150,000 set of improvements in the New Year.

Staffordshire County Council’s highways team will start four-week scheme in Wedgwood Street, Wolstanton, next Tuesday January 2.

The first phase of the works will see kerbs replaced and pavements resurfaced before the road resurfacing is carried out between January 25 and January 31. While works on the pavements are carried out temporary traffic lights will be in place.

During its resurfacing from January 25, Wedgwood Street will be closed completely to traffic until January 31. A diversion will be in place along High Street, Minton Street and Bristol Street though people will be able to access properties on the street throughout the week. Work will be carried out on weekdays between 7.30am and 5pm.

Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet support member for highways and transport Helen Fisher said:

The Wedgwood Street is scheme is one of a number of road improvement projects lined up in 2018 as part of the county council’s rolling highways programme. To carry out the work safely, the team will need to put temporary traffic lights in place and a week-long closure. We’d like to thank people in advance for their patience while work is carried out.”
