A50 Growth Corridor update: July 2017


We’re writing for a second time in quick succession to ensure you’re aware that the A50 at Uttoxeter will be closed in both directions at the weekend.

The closure is to allow six steel beams, each 47 metres long and weighing approximately 45 tonnes apiece, to be lifted by crane and placed across the dual carriageway to form the backbone of a new bridge linking with the A522.

To allow the work to be done as quickly and as safely as possible, the A50 will be closed in both directions from 8pm on Friday, 7 July until 5.30am on Monday, 10 July.
The closure will be between the A521 roundabout at Blythe Bridge and the B5030 roundabout at Uttoxeter, where McDonald’s stands.
Advance notices will be put in place by Highways England on its wider A-road and motorway network, including the M1, M6 and A38, to encourage traffic to take alternative routes and signposted diversions will be in place, suitable for all vehicles including HGVs.

Denstone Diary

Sue Edmonson has produced the first issue of a beautiful (FREE!) glossy magazine about Denstone Village. She plans to make this an annual publication that will be useful to newcomers and current residents alike. By now (end May 2017), all households in the village should have received one of these colourful magazines. If you haven’t received one, or you have just moved into the village, you can download it in pdf format.

Best Kept Village 2016

Thank you John and Pauline Jilbert, Sam Bailey and all residents who help to keep Denstone looking so lovely, not just for the Best Kept Village judging but throughout the year. I must also thank All Saints School for the wonderful posters they produce for the Best Kept Village and Bob Wright for putting these up throughout the village.

This year we were awarded a Highly Commended in our category with Bramshall coming first, Hoar Cross second and Kingstone third. I don’t have the judges’ comments as yet but will post these on-line and on the noticeboard in the Village once received.

Jacquie Payne
Chair of Denstone Parish Council
