Watch: Telford & Wrekin's 'thank you' road markings for the NHS and key workers

By Rob Smith | Newport | News | Published: | Last Updated:

Giant 'Thank Yous' have been appearing on roads and roundabouts across Telford & Wrekin to pay tribute to the NHS and key workers.

Telford & Wrekin's contractors have been creating the giant messages alongside rainbow-coloured hearts this week.

Newport was the first town to receive one of the messages, with residents waking up on Wednesday morning to see the High Street emblazoned with the message.

And today crews have been out decorating the entrance to Morrisons in Wellington, the road to Tesco in Madeley and the Old Park roundabout near Lawley and the Rock.

More Covid-19 coverage:

One has also been completed at the Bridge Retail Park, near the centre of Telford, with more to follow in that area.

Donnington in Asda, Malinsgate and the Naird and Limekiln roundabouts will all receive their own artworks too.

The work has been carried out by contractors Balfour Beatty and their partners WJ and Thermmark.


Telford & Wrekin Council has been shooting aerial footage of the markings being painted in.
