Staffordshire: Biddulph carriageway set to be resurfaced next month 

A £860,000 highways improvement scheme to resurface Meadows Way in Biddulph will commence at the start of June. 

The works will take place on the A527 Meadows Way between the Wharf Road roundabout and the Tunstall Road roundabout.  

Crews will completely resurface the carriageway, replacing ironwork where necessary and replacing damaged kerbs as part of a £860,000 investment into the local area. This is part of a wider £50 million county council investment in Staffordshire’s roads over the next three years. 

The scheme is scheduled to start on Monday 3 June and the work is expected to take around four weeks under lane closures. 

Weather permitting, overnight road closures will be in place for both roundabouts from 21 June until 1 July so that carriageway resurfacing can take place at minimum disruption to the public. 

Signposted diversion routes will be in place for properties in the area and access to surrounding roads for residents will be maintained for most of the scheme.  

Mark Deaville, Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for strategic highways, said: “The heavy traffic along Meadows Way in Biddulph 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.”
