could the sign be in the wrong place as nearby Greyfriars place has gas work starting Feb 17
stone road which was done last year now has massive bald patches where all the chippings have come away.
I have massive bald patches where all my hair has come away.
Don't worry the council will be along to resurface it for you shortly.
Won't last very long though unfortunately.
Bit like Wayne Rooney.
Especially on the entrance to Co-Operative Street.
I don’t think so. There have been signs on Greyfriars Place for at least a week and those roadworks are only for 8 weeks, not 20.
The electronic sign mentions major disruptions, which probably means Stone Road or Eccleshall Road or the roundabout.
A large item has fallen from a truck at the central Queensway roundabout - potential for chaos.
May i remind you good sir, that this is stafford, potential for chaos on our roads has been achieved in an instant.
Astonishing moment lorry sheds 100-tonne load of machinery onto Staffordshire roundabout - sparking traffic chaos
Two lampposts were also damaged in the incident
A lorry has shed its 100-tonne load onto a roundabout in Staffordshire - knocking over the lampposts.
Machinery came off the back of the HGV in North Walls, Stafford, and ended up on the traffic island shortly at 12.30pm today (February 12).
Emergency services and highways remain at the scene as the vehicle still needs to be recovered.
Police confirmed no-one was injured in the collision and repairs to the lights are ongoing.
Motorists are being urged to avoid the area.
A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: "We were called by the ambulance service at 12.38pm to reports a lorry had shed its load. Machinery weighing around 100 tonnes has come off the back.
"The lights on the island have been knocked off and highways are currently at the scene fixing the problem.
"We are trying to arrange recovery of the vehicle. The fire service also assisted but have since left the scene.
"Nobody was injured in the incident and no arrests have been made."
Might take more than a trolley jack and a good shove to retrieve that.
I might be tempted to just shove it the rest of the way and let the swamp deal with it.
Looks like the recovery vehicle is on the scene, leaning against a tree in the third pic. The return of angry cyclist?
Very like my bike, but that was outside Radio Rentals at the time.
It's lucky that he was in the right-hand lane when it fell off, so there is still a single lane sneak through available...
Hah, just noticed the logo on the rock grinder - “Wham BAM Thank you Mam !”
I thought the Bam Bam arrangement was a Flintstones homage.
Still there, apparently - the traffic looks grim.
Queensway roundabout closed to remove yesterday's shed load. 4 tow trucks on site and stabilising it with sleepers.
Traffic is still. And looking grim.
Looks like it's getting back towards being movable again, but they won't want it falling off somewhere else now...
There was the distinct air of the fairground as I approached along the closed North Walls.
Ah, thought I'd posted this earlier - the traffic map suggests that it's still there.
Pat Collins is still going ? …. I'm impressed …. !!!
