New road safety measures introduced in Staffordshire village

Road safety measures will be introduced in a village near Rugeley from next week.

Gateways and speed cushions will be installed on the B5014 and the D3191 in Hill Ridware over seven weeks beginning on Monday June 22.

The gateways will be installed at each entrance to the village, narrowing the road width to slow traffic down. On each gateway approach the speed limit will be reduced from 60mph to 40mph and then to 30mph through the village.

Speed cushions will also be built on the roads in Hill Ridware.

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

Ensuring our roads are safe is a top priority to us and we’re pleased to see this scheme introduced in Hill Ridware.

It will mean traffic is slowed down through the village and the community will feel safer and be safer. It is a comprehensive scheme and the works period will be seven weeks, so we’d like to thank people in advance for their patience.

We’re confident that this will bring long-term benefits to residents of Hill Ridware.”
