North Staffordshire road blocked as truck collides with sign

A key North Staffordshire road is currently blocked after a truck has become stuck under a sign. Police and firefighters are currently on Tean Road in Cheadle where a lorry has got stuck going into Tean Road Recreation Ground. A photograph from the scene shows the truck beneath the arch at the park.

Meanwhile further photographs have shown police and a fire engine on Tean Road. Traffic monitoring system Inrix is reporting that the A522 is ‘closing in both directions due to a broken down lorry’. It states that traffic is being diverted via Chapel Street.

Tean Road Recreation Ground sits on Tean Road between the junctions of Station Road and Mill Road – with the main entrance closer to the Mill Road junction.

We are waiting for further information on the collision from Staffordshire Police and Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service.
