Shrewsbury North West Relief Road: Watch the 3D fly-through video as consultation opens

A public consultation on Shrewsbury's North West Relief Road opens today - and you can take a 3D video flythrough of the proposed route.

Shirehall in Shrewsbury will be hosting a public exhibition on the plans from 5pm to 8pm. It will be followed by a series of exhibitions across the town over the next three weeks.

Shropshire Council has released this flythrough video:

The council is preparing a refreshed outline business case for the road to submit to the Department for Transport by December 22 this year.

Responses from the consultation will be collated and submitted as part of the business case. The last North West Relief Road consultation was held in 2010.

Steve Davenport, Shropshire Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport, said: "We’re on target to deliver the refreshed outline business case to the Department for Transport by December 22.

“The refreshed business case will allow Shropshire Council to put the concept of a north west relief road into a present day setting, where such initiatives as the Shrewsbury Integrated Transport Package and the Oxon Link Road are now programmed for delivery over the next five years.

“There is currently no guarantee that a positive business case would lead to funding being awarded. However, over the next year – as the business case is examined – Shropshire Council will continue to liaise closely with the DfT, as well as the Marches LEP, and the Midlands Connect initiative to ensure that the outcome of the business case refresh has as high a profile as possible when future national construction funding is being awarded.”
