Works will begin at Stafford Road on September 21, and are due to last until October 7.

Two-way traffic lights will be used to manage traffic while the highway near Broadway is affected by the work.

Telford & Wrekin Council highways contractor Balfour Beatty will lead on the project, while sub-contractor GN Groundworks will carry out the work itself.

Any questions about the scheme can be directed to
