Communities living alongside key routes around Lichfield could see their concerns eased with traffic orders being put in place to reduce the amount of HGV traffic.
Residents in areas such as Yoxall and Kings Bromley have campaigned for measures to cut the number of large vehicles using local roads as an alternative to the A38.
Experimental traffic orders are now being introduced along the A515 after talks with the Staffordshire Freight and Communities Forum.
Phase one will see left and right turn bans for HGVa at three junctions on the A515 on roads which lead to the A38.
These are the B5016 in Yoxall, the A513 in Kings Bromley and the C0183 Wood End Lane north of Lichfield.
Signs will be installed to inform drivers of the new orders and businesses from across the area have also been updated.
Officials say they will regularly review the impact of orders, which will be in place for an initial 18 months once they are introduced in February.
Phase two will see local roads reclassified.
Staffordshire County Council says it is making the case for Wood End Lane to be improved through the HS2 construction programme, after which it can be reclassified as an A or B road. The A513 and B5016 can then be reclassified to lower status roads so that weight restrictions could be applied.
Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport, Cllr Helen Fisher said: “We are pleased that the experimental traffic orders will finally come into force in February.
“We have worked closely with parish councils and other organisations through the freight forum to find practical and achievable ways to address some of the concerns raised by HGV traffic on the A515.
“It was important to everyone that we were able put forward measures that could be delivered promptly and with a relative ease.
“Experimental traffic orders do just that and mean that we can monitor their effectiveness during the temporary period. We can then make decisions on longer term measures or possible alternatives. If successful we can then look to reclassify some local roads to make the measures even more effective.
“It is also important to note that this is a community-led scheme and has been implemented in response to community concerns.
“We are confident these measures can make a difference and that we have managed to get to this stage as a result of our work with the parish councils and communities.”
