Staffordshire pilot project to ease congestion
A pedestrian crossing in Staffordshire will be moved as part of a pilot project to cut congestion.
Staffordshire County Council will be closing the existing crossing point on Mill Street, in Stone.
Work will begin later, to replace it with a temporary crossing located before the junction.
The council said the aim is to ease tailbacks caused when shoppers leave Morrison's car park and drive onto Christchurch Way.
A council spokesman said the trial will last for a month and comes after motorists said they were having problems exiting the supermarket.
He added the work to move the crossing will take about a week.
Traffic will be controlled using lane restrictions and signs.
