Sir Bill Cash MP intervenes in road closures

Tuesday, 7 June, 2016

In response to recent road closures on both the Eccleshall Road and Meece Road, Stone MP Sir Bill Cash has said –
“My constituents, including local business owners and many families are very concerned about the closure on the Eccleshall Road overbridge on the M6 on top of the anticipated closure on the nearby Meece Road, near Yarnfield, connecting Cold Meece and Norton Bridge.     
“I understand from my recent communications with Highways England that they are to close both areas of those roads.     
“It imposes a huge disruption on my constituents living in and around this area, specifically with regards to commuting to work and journeys to and from school. 
“My constituents have rightly raised concerns about the impact these road closures will have on emergency vehicle access to their properties.
“My constituents have told me that they have not been consulted on this matter and feel that to have both roads closed simultaneously is completely unacceptable and unworkable.
“In Cold Norton, these two concurrent closures will effectively isolate my constituents from Stone, its schools, medical facilities and other services unless they make the 15-mile diversion.
“I have therefore written to the Secretary of State, Highways England and Staffordshire County Council to seek an alternative to this situation.”
