Telford & Wrekin Council is carrying out a major spring clean of the A442 Eastern Primary to improve the highway gateways to the town off this main strategic route.

Major A442 spring clean planned

Work will get under way on Monday 18 April, lasting approximately two weeks.

The work will include grass cutting of verges, slipways and islands and will also include the central reservation between Brockton Roundabout and the Brockton Loop.

The council will also carry out a litter pick of all the grass and woodland areas and work will be carried out on some trees that have been damaged during the winter storms. 

In order to carry out the work, some temporary lane closures will be required.

We aim to keep traffic delays to a minimum, using only single lane closures which will avoid peak traffic times and operate between 9.30am - 3.30pm.

Councillor Shaun Davies, cabinet member for Business, Neighbourhood and Customer Services, said: “We are carrying out this work in response to requests from businesses, Parishes and residents of the borough, and as part of our programme of maintenance work that we have planned throughout the year.

“It is all part of ensuring Telford and Wrekin is a destination of choice as a great place to live, work and visit.

“Our aim is to maintain a clean and tidy environment along our key north to south trunk road which in turn helps to encourage repeat business and leisure tourism.”

This work forms part of Telford & Wrekin Council’s Pride In Your Community programme which is a package of environmental and infrastructure improvements aiming to significantly improve residential and employment areas including district and borough towns.

The work is scheduled to be completed by Friday 29 April.
