Kilkern to curb reckless drivers in Stoke

12th Oct 2022

Kilkern Civil Engineering has been awarded a contract to provide traffic calming measures in a Stoke-on-Trent residential area plagued by speeding motorists.

The leading highways and infrastructure specialist has been appointed by principal contractor Galliford Try, on behalf of City of Stoke-on-Trent Council, to deliver road safety improvements along and around Chaplin Road in Longton.

According to Chris Wright, Kilkern’s Civil Engineering Director, the project will effectively turn Chaplin Road’s six adjacent roads into a one way system with the aim of relieving traffic.

“Despite this being a residential area with clearly-marked 30 mile per hour speed limits, Chaplin Road has suffered from drivers racing along it at all times of day and night,” he said. “This scheme will discourage through traffic and promote safer driving to make sure that Chaplin Road is primarily used by those living in the area.

“The works will comprise the construction of footway build-outs and the resurfacing of the existing footways to create “pinch-points” and slow traffic at junctions; the installation of new kerbs and ducting; the provision of new road gullies and connections; and the removal and installation of new carriageway markings.
