CX014 – Structural Maintenance Work on the A525 Higherland in Newcastle-Under-Lyme

Staffordshire County Council will shortly be carrying out significant works at the A525 Higherland in Newcastle-Under-Lyme, as they start work on an £285,000 investment in the local area, which is due to start later in the year.

The team will be replacing ironwork where necessary, replacing damaged kerbs and resurfacing the carriageway. The works will be conducted under lane closures, and nighttime closures for the resurfacing of the carriageway.


When are the works taking place?

The work will commence 8th July 2024.


When will the works be completed?

Approximately 6 weeks to complete the works.


Will I be able to access my home/business?

For the safety of the public and of the work force this road will be closed during the resurfacing of the carriageway, this will be done from the 5th of August and 7th of August and will be restricted to the hours of 8pm and 6am to minimise any disturbance to the public.

Access to the surrounding roads for residents will be maintained for the majority of the scheme. Delays must be expected during resurfacing phases. 

During the road closures, a diversion route will be in place for properties outside the workspace, no through traffic will be permitted.


What effect could the works have on me?

We take care to make sure that work is completed with the minimum of disturbance to the local community but as with any major works, some minor traffic delays may occur.

Although we will do our best to ensure that noise pollution is kept to a minimum, it is likely that construction noise will be heard during the working times.

Please take care to plan your journeys and if necessary move vehicles to an accessible location during work phases (public letters will be delivered to affected properties with specific scheme details).  


How you can help us

You can help us to get the job done with the minimum disruption by following this advice: 

  • Please keep children away from the works while they are being implemented to ensure their safety. 
  • Please drive appropriately by following the signed diversion routes and adhering to access restrictions.
  • Account for possible delays when planning journeys
