Roadworks on A442 – 10 & 11 October 2017

Roadworks SignRegular users of the A442 towards Wellington will be aware of the ongoing works by the junction for Little Bolas just north of the county border with Telford and Wrekin. Details of the work and a map of its location can be found on roadworks.org

The work, which is to enable the refurbishment of Sandyford Culvert under the A442, has so far not disrupted traffic on this busy road. Shropshire Council have recently informed our local councillor, Karen Calder, and the Parish Council that traffic lights will be required for a maximum of 2 consecutive days while a new timber fence is erected and traffic sign repaired.  The temporary traffic lights are required to control traffic speeds through the works area, as the traffic speeds in this location are high and the verge is relatively narrow with a steep embankment to the rear.

The dates on which it is expected that the traffic lights will be in operate are 10 & 11 October, between the hours of 9:30am and 4:30pm. Hopefully, they will therefore not impact on journey times of morning and evening commuters.
