Pride In Our Community improvements - week beginning 3 December 2018

Roads – work continues in Brunel Road, Mount Road and Church Road, Malinslee; Waterloo Road, Ketley; Hollies Road, Steventon Road, Cranage Crescent and Orleton Lane in Wellington and Glendale, Lawley. Get live updates on street works and traffic management schemes in Telford here.

Footpaths – improvements continue in Oakengates, Madeley and Hadley.

Residential parking – crews are continuing work on Concorde, Dawley Bank.

Footbridges – work on the footbridge near Mere Grove in Shawbirch has been completed this week (see before & after pics).  Crews now working on the Priorslee boardwalk.

Safety schemes – Work starts on a safety scheme along Castlefields Way, Aqueduct and will continue for three weeks. There will be road closures in place but they will be timed to reduce the impact on school traffic.

Winter maintenance – our gritters will be out as and when needed. Here’s the Met Office 5 day forecast for Telford.

Potholes - crews are filling potholes that have been reported to us. Please report any potholes you spot here or via the Everyday Telford app.

Street lighting – crews are working on upgrading street lights in Wellington, Dawley, Hollinswood and Randlay. As the teams upgrade the street lights in each area, they inspect each column and light first. In some cases, the column needs replacing and so it will be at this point that the new LEDs are installed. Some are in need of further inspection, and so these too are being done later. The full LED programme will be completed by April 2019. If you have a question about street lighting, please email

Improvements in Hollies Road and surrounding area in Wellington continue until mid-December. Temporary road closures are in place, but are being phased in order to keep disruption to local residents & businesses to a minimum. More information, including FAQs and contact details here.

Grounds maintenance and litter picking – crews are out clearing leaves, winter pruning and clearing shrub beds. You can report a grounds maintenance issue here. Anyone wanting to report an issue with littering in their area can do so here.

Street Champions – our volunteers are doing a champion job in their communities. They report issues they see to us and do litter picks (among other things). We’re also recruiting volunteer Snow Wardens ready for winter. If you would like to volunteer as a Street Champion or Snow Warden please get in touch. Details of all volunteering opportunities here.

Christmas recycling/waste collections are changing over Christmas. Collections will be back to normal on Monday 7 January. Details here.
