AROUND £25,000 will be spent in a bid to ease traffic woes caused by lorries in a built-up area of Burton.
Staffordshire County Council confirmed it had found funding for new signage aimed at directing traffic away from the B5017 Shobnall Road, to placate campaigners who have been fighting for improvements for years.
The new signs will push traffic along the A515 onto the A50 and A38, in a bid to help put an end to haulage HGV problems along the residential road.
Burton MP Andrew Griffiths, who campaigned for the county council to bring about the changes, said: "The council has now agreed to put up these new signs, a move that will come as some relief to people living in the area.
"However, this is only the first step and we will continue to push for greater improvements for people in the area."
Campaigners were left disappointed earlier this year after learning that calls for a weight restriction on the road had been knocked by decision-makers.
In a letter to Mr Griffiths, council chief executive Nick Bell said: "We gave a commitment to look long-term at signage and speed limits in a bid to reduce the number of commercial vehicles using this route.
"We have introduced a part-time 20mph speed limit outside Shobnall Primary School and increased the number of visits made by our safety camera vans.
"We also made a commitment to look at signage improvements along the A515 onto the A50 and A38, as opposed to current signage that directs traffic towards Shobnall Road and Henhurst Hill."
Highways Agency bosses have stated they will not improve signage along the A50.
