Village set to benefit from road safety scheme

A scheme to improve safety on a road past a village school near Stafford will begin on Monday December 4.

The county council’s highways team has worked with Hixon Parish Council to introduce the scheme, which will see 30mph signs moved further south from St Peter’s C of E Primary School to slow traffic earlier.

In addition, a new raised table will be installed on Church Lane close to the school. Change of speed limit road signs and markings will be moved from the current location south of the industrial estate Selwood Road access to south of the Pasturefields Lane junction.

The scheme is set to be completed on Friday December 8 and access will be maintained throughout the week, though with temporary traffic signals in place.

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

Safety on our roads is a top priority to us and we’re keen to address any issues raised by communities. We have worked with the parish council to draw up this scheme and we’re pleased to see it implemented next week. We’re confident it will make a real difference and give people reassurance and peace of mind.”
