The proposed Network Rail footbridge would provide pedestrian access across the three-track railway, and provide vertical and horizontal clearance to satisfy signal sighting, possible future electrification and derailment.

Objections have been raised by a local councillor and parish council. Shropshire Council planning chief say they have raised issues that make it appropriate for the application to be considered by the southern area planning committee.

The meeting starts at 2pm at Shirehall in Shrewsbury.
