Sections of the A4117 near Ludlow are being resurfaced and Shropshire Council has reminded people that businesses on the B4364 and A4117 are still open for customers.

The resurfacing work is being carried out from 8pm to 6am each night until May 7 between Ludlow and Clee Hill – from Rocks Green to a point just east of Squirrel Lane. No work is carried out on Saturday or Sunday nights.

During the works the B4364 is closed as a through route, but access is available for the entire length of the B4364 from Bridgnorth to its junction with the A4117 – meaning businesses along this stretch of the road – including pubs and restaurants, can still be reached at all times.

A spokesperson from Shropshire Council said: "For businesses located within the closed area of the A4117 there is unrestricted access during the daytime – between 6am and 8pm – and at weekends.

"During the closure times – 8pm to 6am on weekdays – there may be short delays while machinery or the workforce are moved to allow safe access to be maintained. Operatives are on hand to advise during these times with all effort being maintained to ensure access when safe and available

"Signs stating that ‘businesses are open as normal’ are being placed at key locations."
