Work has started on a US$22.4 million access route through the centre of Stafford in northern England.

Trial piles were installed along one section of the Stafford Western Access Route to enable the project team to draw up final designs and ensure it can minimise noise and vibration from the construction work.

Plans for the route were approved in November after the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Enterprise Partnership secured the $22.4 million for the project through the central government’s Local Growth Fund.
 
Staffordshire County Council’s economy, environment and transport leader Mark Winnington said that the trial works went well with nothing unexpected. “It means the team can finalise the design and explore options to reduce the impact of the main works by finding the best way to build the new road.”
