Road Closure -High Hill Essington Planned for May 15th 2018

Wednesfield North residents please be aware Staffordshire County Council will be closing High Hill Essington to deal with the pothole issues as they have been a huge danger to traffic during the past winter months.

Residents in Kitchen Lane and Linthouse Lane should note however that Staffordshire County Council will be sign posting a diversion using Wednesfield North highway network in Kitchen Lane and Linthouse Lane as a diversion.

This perhaps will not add to much traffic to our road system. But it may attract some!

The date for closure of High Hill is 15th of May 2018 – though they are taking powers for up to five days, for unseen problems….

Hope this news helps residents to understand what may happen…….and be prepared if they use High Hill for their own journeys…
