New plans for railway junction to be unveiled
MORE consultation is to take place on £200 million plans to upgrade a railway junction.
Network Rail wants to build a flyover to relieve the bottleneck at Norton Bridge, near Stone.
Consultation held last October found the proposed road and footpath changes would be "complex and disruptive", so further options for the junction have now been developed.
Residents can attend a series of public exhibitions to find out more.

They take place next Tuesday at Chebsey Village Hall, from 3pm to 7pm; next Wednesday at St Luke's Church, Norton Bridge, from 11am to 3pm; next Thursday, at Great Bridgeford Village Hall, from 4pm to 8pm; and Tuesday, April 17 at Yarnfield Village Hall from 11am to 3pm.
The plans involve building a flyover to take Birmingham to Manchester trains up and over the main line rather than across it.
The development would provide two extra fast trains per hour between London and the north west. There would also be capacity for one extra train per hour between Manchester (via Stone) and Birmingham, and one additional freight train per hour through Stafford.
