Active travel Stafford

The scheme will improve the environment on routes bypassed by the Stafford Western Access Route, by means of a new segregated cycle route and improved, widened footways mainly along Chell Road.

The new segregated cycle track will tie into the shared facilities with the Stafford Western Access Route and link with the existing Isabel Trail track. 

The left turn carriageway at Broad Eye Roundabout will be narrowed to enable the continuation of the cycle route through Doxey Road into Chell Road. 

The central refuge at the pedestrian crossing at the Lamb Inn will be removed and replaced with a single stage Toucan crossing to make it more suitable for use for cyclists. 

The bus stop will be redesigned, with the cycle route bypassing it to ensure no conflict between cyclists and pedestrians.

The carriageway will be reduced from three to two traffic lanes on Chell Road at the approach to Gaol Square roundabout to allow the cycle lane to be continued into Foregate Street.

There will be one exit lane from Gaol Square into Chell Road to allow suitable space for the cycle route and the upgraded crossing facility.

To complement the improved facilities, a new 20 miles per hour speed limit will be introduced along the full length of Chell Road to the benefit of both cyclists and pedestrians. 

The works are due to begin in June and aim to be completed by the end of the year.
