Baldwin's Gate completion NEWSROOM

Works to resurface the A53 Newcastle Road, crossing the Baldwins Gate railway bridge, have been completed.

The A53 carriageway, at Baldwins Gate, has been completely resurfaced, thanks to a £220,000 highways investment. 

The major repair scheme saw the A53 Newcastle Road, crossing the Baldwins Gate railway bridge, undergo extensive repairs over the last four weeks. 

In addition to completely resurfacing the road, highways crews replaced ironwork and damaged kerbs. 

This highways scheme finished on Friday 15 March and cost £220,000 to complete.

Staffordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, David Williams, said:

“It is fantastic to see another highways scheme completed so residents can look forward to smoother and safer journeys when travelling along Newcastle Road. 

“I would like to thank everyone for their patience and cooperation whilst these works took place. 

“We know how important good roads are for people which is why the county council is investing an extra £50 million across the county over the next three years.” 

The extra £50 million investment will fund 34 road reconstruction schemes, over 450 preventative carriageway maintenance schemes and £2.75 million of work to repair highway drainage. 

This is in addition to a further £53 million being spent on a range of major projects, vital road improvements and general road maintenance in 2024 and 2025.  

Full details of the investment are available here and will be recommended to the county council’s Cabinet for approval on March 20.
