Motorists face delays in Telford over the next three weeks as works to bring the borough’s roads up to scratch get under way.
The work, part of a £7million scheme, is being carried out on dual carriageways across the borough. Telford & Wrekin Council’s highways department will be carrying out repairs with a rolling programme of closures planned, and has apologised for delays in advance.
Work began for two weeks on Sunday on the section of the A442 between the Brockton Loop to Castlefields Roundabout and will progress northwards, ending with the Trench Lock to Wombridge Interchange section on September 23.
Tonight, Naird Farm Road will be closed between Naird Farm Road and Castle Farm roundabout.
There will be lane closures around Ketley and Telford Way from Ketley Brook Roundabout to Ketley Dingle Interchange, and Telford Way between Priorslee Roundabout and Hollinswood Interchange, on Sunday.
On Monday Queensway (A442) between Randlay Interchange and Hollins-wood Roundabout will be closed, and on Tuesday the work will continue along Queensway between Hollinswood and the Greyhound Roundabout.
On Wednesday it will continue to the Wombridge Interchange. The final section of the A442 from Wombridge to Trench Lock will be closed on September 23.
And on September 20 the B4373 Mossey Green Road between Mossey Green Roundabout and Beveley Roundabout will be closed.
All work will be done during off peak hours.
The full road closures will operate between 9.30am-3.30pm and 7pm to midnight Monday to Thursday, and between 7am-4pm on Sundays. Where roads are closed diversion routes will be in place.
Councillor Shaun Davies, cabinet member for neighbourhood services and co-operative council, said: “We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused to local business or residents whilst the work is being carried out and we pledge to keep disruption to a minimum.
“The council has budgeted to spend £7 million on the highway network over the year.”
