Council spends £860k resurfacing one North Staffordshire road

Resurfacing part of a pothole-riddled bypass is going to cost taxpayers £860,000. Staffordshire County Council started coning off parts of Meadows Way, in Biddulph, last week.

The works - between the Wharf Road and Tunstall Road roundabouts - are expected to be completed by July 1. Overnight road closures are expected from June 21.

Councillor Mark Deaville, Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for strategic highways, said: “The heavy traffic along Meadows Way has taken its toll on the road so we have invested hundreds of thousands of pounds to completely resurface the carriageway. Our crews always make great efforts to ensure that works are completed at minimum disruption to residents but, as with any major road schemes, some traffic delays can be expected. Letters with further information will be sent out to any affected properties in the area.

“I’m sure people travelling along this route will notice the world of difference once the resurfacing is complete. I would like to thank people in advance for their patience while this essential work takes place.”
