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.
