Marston Grange - Highway Improvements

Marston Grange - A513 Beaconside - Marston Gate - Stafford - Staffordshire - ST16 1WA

Taylor Wimpey is improving the A513 Beaconside outside the Marston Grange development in Stafford.

  • Overview

    Works to improve the A513 Beaconside

    We are obligated under the planning permission granted by Stafford Borough Council to upgrade the A513 Beaconside fronting our Marston Grange development in Stafford. This will involve widening a 700m section of the road outside our development from two lanes to four, and will improve journey times along the A513. 

    The main phase of improvement works will begin in January 2019, and will take approximately nine months to complete.

    This page is designed to keep you informed, and we will update it with the latest information throughout the period of works. Further details can be found on the tabs above.

    We held a public exhibition to allow residents to ask questions about our plans at Parkside Primary School on Wednesday 11th July 2018. You can download the exhibition boards from the event at the following link:

  • What's proposed

    Our proposal to improve the A513 Beaconside

    Under the planning permission granted by Stafford Borough Council, we are obligated to widen a 700m stretch of the road from two lanes to four. The intention is to improve journey times along the A513.

    Preliminary work to enable the diversion of existing Vodafone and Virgin Media cables along the A513 Beaconside has already been completed by our contractors McPhillips Wellington Ltd. McPhillips will return to site the beginning of August 2018 to complete an earthworks operation on the north embankment. 

    Following this work, Vodafone and Virgin Media will divert their existing cables. Both companies are required to serve a three-month notice period to their customers before starting work, and this notice period cannot begin until we complete our earthworks operation. Vodafone and Virgin Media advise that their diversion work will be completed by mid-January 2019.

    In late January 2019 we will then begin the main phase of the improvement works. This will involve widening the carriageway and will take approximately nine months to complete.

    All of this work will be completed with the full approval of Staffordshire County Council and we hope to keep inconvenience to the local community to a minimum. However, there will be some disruption at times, and for this we apologise.

    Details of lane closures and traffic management will be uploaded here as they are confirmed.

    The below diagram shows the area of works highlighted in yellow, with the proposed road layout outlined in black (click to enlarge).

    We are improving the A513 Beaconside as part of our Section 106 agreement with Stafford Borough Council, which was signed after planning permission for the Marston Grange development was granted. The work is designed to improve journey times and  despite the period of inconvenience we hope the community will appreciate our investment in the road network.

    Taylor Wimpey supports the communities in which it builds not only by providing much-needed new homes, but also through financial contributions that help improve local infrastructure and facilities such as roads, schools and health services.
