Progress report

We recently held two exhibitions near to the A500, between Porthill (A5271) and Wolstanton (A527). Both events turned out to be a great success with over 200 members of the public attending and providing information and feedback. If you have not already given your views, please send these to our email address A500EtruriaWidening@highwaysengland.co.uk by the 12th April 2017.

What next?

Following on from the exhibitions we will review and collate your feedback and, where practical, will use this information to help shape our future design.

Why we need the scheme

The section of the A500 around the urban area of Stoke-on-Trent suffers from:
  • congestion
  • journey time delays
  • closely-spaced junctions
  • places where the traffic merges in a non-standard way
  • a high number of collisions at these junctions and merge points as a result of the high volume of traffic
This scheme will also support the Etruria Valley Development by allowing the A500 to accommodate the new traffic this development will generate.

Aims

The aims of the scheme are to:
  • improve safety
  • reduce delays and queuing
  • improve journey time reliability.

The scheme in detail

The government announced this scheme in August 2014 as part of their Road Investment Strategy (RIS).

We propose to widen the A500 to provide and additional lane in both directions between the A5271(Porthill) and A527 (Wolstanton) junctions.

This scheme will help facilitate the Stoke Growth Deal (Etruria Valley Development) proposed improvements at the A500 Wolstanton junction.
