K Power Solutions will carry out work to install an electrical cable in Shrewsbury from the substation on Broseley Close and along Oteley Road, up to Thrower Road, to provide a power supply to the LIH development.

The work will be completed in two phases.

The first phase will take place from October 18-29, so that the traffic management measures are removed prior to the build up to the Christmas period.

The second phase of works will then continue for up to four weeks from January 9 next year.

During the work temporary traffic lights will be required, which will be manually controlled by a traffic management operative from 7.30am to 6.30pm.

Shropshire Council said its inspection team will monitor works as they progress.

A spokesman said: "Residents and affected businesses will be notified of the works and advanced warning signs will be placed on site two weeks prior to the scheme starting."

Meanwhile another town-centre road will be dug up for a week next month.

Western Power Distribution will be installing a new electrical supply to a property on The Mount – next to Hafren Road – from November 1 to 8.

The work will involve excavating three joint holes and installing 84 metres of electrical cable for the new supply.

For safety purposes temporary traffic lights will be in place with a traffic management operative on site from 7.30am to 6.30pm each day to monitor and react to any traffic build up within the area.

Residents and affected business are to be notified in advance via a letter drop.
