Highways improvements in Newcastle completed

A34 Talke Road

Work on a major highways improvements scheme on the A34 Talke Road in Newcastle has finished.

The £375,000 scheme at the approach to Bradwell Hospital was delivered by highways crews from Staffordshire County Council.  Work included road and pavement resurfacing along with repairs to gullies, kerbing and some ironwork.

The scheme was funded through the Department for Transport’s pothole fund and is in addition to a wider £50 million investment by the council into its roads over the next three years.

Mark Deaville, Cabinet Member for Strategic Highways at Staffordshire County Council said:

“The A34 Talke Road is one of the main roads into Newcastle town so it’s great to see the work completed.

“I would like to say thanks to drivers for their patience and co-operation during the works.

“We know that good roads are essential for people and for our local economy, which is why we’ll be investing around £50 million in them over the next three years.  This is one of many schemes planned in the borough over the next 12 months. Other schemes will include those at the A519 Brooke Lane, A525 Higherland and the B5368 Lower Milehouse Lane.”
