Residents tell Highways England to ease Talke traffic problems

Local authorities, MPs and Highways England say they'll work together to find solutions to traffic problems in part of Staffordshire.

It follows a public meeting, where it was decided replacing chicanes with speed bumps in Talke Pits would ease congestion there.

However residents were told there was not enough funding allocated by Staffordshire County Council for the area to carry out the improvements - though options will be explored to ensure the work can be carried out.

Concerns were also raised about the lack of consultation and problematic diversions regarding the partial closure of the A34 Talke roundabout for bridge work.
