Pride in Our Community improvements - week beginning 13 May 2019

Roadworks and traffic management schemes - get live updates on Telford and Wrekin here.

Road lining – crews are out refreshing road markings in Great Dawley, Madeley, Sutton Hill, Wellington and Woodside.

Drains – the gully tanker and crews are cleaning and emptying drains in Halesfield, Madeley and Sutton Hill. You can report a drainage issue here.

Footpaths – crews are improving footpaths in Hadley, Leegomery, Newport, Trench and Wrockwardine Wood.  You can report a footpath issue here.

Potholes - crews are filling potholes that have been reported to us. This week they are in Apley, Ketley, Shawbirch and Wellington. Please report any you spot here.

Street lighting – the main programme to upgrade street lights to more energy efficient LEDs is complete. Crews are, however, revisiting various locations to upgrade any less straightforward lights e.g. where access had been an issue on their initial visit. If you have a question about street lighting, please email

Grounds maintenance and litter picking – grounds maintenance crews are out as usual this week – mowing and tidying. You can report a grounds maintenance issue here.  Street cleansing crews are also out road/footpath sweeping, litter picking, bin emptying etc. Anyone wanting to report an issue with littering in their area can do so here

Street Champions – our volunteer Street Champions are out and about doing their bit to keep neighbourhoods tidy. As are The Skills Hub, who are carrying out a litter pick in Horsehay on Wednesday as part of their Stepping into Work programme.  More information about becoming a Street Champion and other volunteering opportunities here.

Environmental enforcement – Our enforcement officers have been dealing with a discarded bed frame, divan, mattress and a lot of cardboard. Although it was all left in a communal waste area, it’s far too big for our bin crews to take away. Please use our bulky item collection service, details here.
