A50 Growth Corridor Update – July 2018

With the new bridge in place and slip roads integrated into the dual carriageway the A50 Project A scheme is nearing completion.
One of the final, big steps is the removal of the south embankment which raises the A522 up to the ‘old’ bridge which crosses the A50.
Workers will lower the area by approximately 20 feet, to allow the installation of new drains and utilities. We will also complete the outstanding stretch of the new A522 carriageway, footpaths and street lighting to connect it to the new junction and bridge across the A50.
To do this the A522 will be completely closed to all vehicles, just west of Tunnicliffe Way, 24-hours-a-day from 5am Monday, July 16 to Friday, September 28.
The slip roads, ‘on’ and ‘off’ the A50, from the A522 New Road roundabout will also be closed at the same time.
We have deliberately scheduled this essential phase of the project to coincide with both the summer holiday closure of the JCB Heavy Products factory and the school summer holidays when traffic levels will be lower. There is no doubt this will cause some inconvenience and I appreciate your patience while we carry out this important work.

Diversions will be clearly signposted and maps showing the alternative routes are available here or by going to and searching for ‘A50’.
Traffic travelling west on the A522 towards Tean will be diverted on to the A50 at the B5030 McDonald’s roundabout and then leave the A50 at the new junction, use the new bridge and re-join the A522.
Traffic travelling east on the A522 towards Uttoxeter will be diverted on to the eastbound A50 and at the B5030 roundabout those wanting Uttoxeter town centre will be directed left towards the A518 The Dove Way.
Pedestrians will still be able to travel in both directions by following a short, signposted diversion between Tunnicliffe Way and The Parks, which passes through Torrance Grove and along a temporarily lit and resurfaced public footpath. Cyclists can also use the route but are asked to dismount on the public footpath.
Access to the Shell petrol station, which stands a few hundred yards west of the B5030 roundabout on the westbound carriageway will be maintained at all times.

Work continues on multi-million pound dementia centre

Work on a multi-million pound centre designed to give the very best care to people with dementia is continuing apace. The Burton dementia centre of excellence will provide home-like accommodation for residents with dementia, giving them the continued high quality care and support they need as their condition changes. It is being built on the site of the Margaret Stanhope Centre in Outwoods, Burton.

The centre, which is being designed to the University of Stirling ‘gold’ standard for dementia care, will provide space for family gatherings, keeping pets, and include communal areas and facilities such as a café and hairdressers.

Officers from Staffordshire County Council and Symphony—a consortium made up of Accord, Keepmoat and Quattro Architects—will be celebrating the ongoing construction of the first flagship centre in Burton with a special sod-cutting ceremony. Officers will also get a tour of the site that will eventually become home to 45 people living with dementia.

County Councillor Alan White, Cabinet Member for Health, Care and Wellbeing at Staffordshire County Council said: “As a county council we very much recognise the devastating impact dementia can have not only on individuals, but on their family and friends. Working closely with our partners, we are ensuring people will get access to a whole range of services to help them live the life that they want for as long as possible. Dementia is one of the biggest challenges facing the whole county over the next few years. This new centre, will transform the way people with the condition can access the care and support they need.”

Maxine Espley, Executive Director of Care and Support, Accord, on behalf of the Symphony consortium, said: “This is a really exciting partnership deal with Staffordshire County Council and we are delighted to be delivering this dementia centre of excellence. The Accord Group is a leader in dementia excellence and has a successful track record of delivering services for people with dementia.

“The new centre will bring innovative thinking to the design of homes for people with dementia coupled with quality care. It will provide support for people currently living in our residential homes and those living in Staffordshire who may need dementia care in the future.”

Caroline Cormack, Head of Home Ownership and Supply in the Midlands for the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) said: “We are pleased to be supporting the Burton dementia centre of excellence, which is an important part of the HCA’s work to support older people through high quality specialist housing.”

The centre is expected to open in September 2018, and Staffordshire County Council and Symphony will continue to work closely with residents, families and staff to allow the smooth transfer of residents from Hillfield House in Stretton during 2018.
