H&S Roadworks in Chell Heath
Written by Jane Lythgoe on 8 September 2020
Work is set to get under way on a scheme to improve safety for pupils, parents and motorists outside a school in the city.
Stoke-on-Trent City Council is carrying out the work near to Burnwood Community School, in Chell Heath, after concerns were raised about dangerous and haphazard parking during school drop-off and pick-up times.
The safety scheme, part of the council’s capital programme of investment across the city, has been welcomed by the school and residents.
The work started yesterday and will take approximately nine weeks to complete. To ensure the safety of workers and motorists, a one-way system will be in operation on Chell Heath Road but as the majority of work is on the grass verge, disruption to traffic will be minimal. Access to Burntwood school, Stoke North Children’s Centre and private properties will be maintained for the duration of the project.
