Road Safety incident in Hanley, JCBs Christmas Toy Appeal

Written by on 15 December 2023

Road safety concerns have been highlighted following an incident on Chell Street, outside of Central Forest Park last Tuesday.

Work to install flood-risk preventative measures were completed and the area was set up with traffic management to allow the newly laid tarmac and new drainage system to set. Between 3 and 7pm, the traffic management lights were moved, but cones and barriers were left in place.

The City Council would like to remind all highway users that safety measures are put in place around worksites for a very specific reason, the safety of all road users.

CCTV in the area is now being reviewed and action will be taken against those who removed the traffic lights.
