Pride in Our Community improvements - week beginning 27 May 2019
Here’s what our crews are working on this week, plus links to more information and to report any issues you are aware of.
Roadworks and traffic management schemes - get live updates on street works and traffic management schemes in Telford and Wrekin here.
Road surface improvements – crews are surface dressing Stirchley Avenue in the Nedge (by the Junction of Randlay Avenue). The road will be closed with a diversion in place while the works are in progress.
Road lining – crews are refreshing road markings in Dawley, Woodside and Madeley.
Drains – the gully tanker and crews are continuing to clean drains in Halesfield, Madeley and Sutton Hill. You can report a drainage issue here.
Potholes - crews are filling potholes that have been reported to us. This week they are in Wrockwardine Wood, Oakengates, Stafford Park, Red Lake, The Rock and Ketley Bank. Please report any you spot here.
Footpaths – crews are improving footpaths in Newport (Forton Glade and Masons Place). You can report a footpath issue 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 email@example.com.
Grounds maintenance – crews are out as usual this week – grass cutting and tidying. Planting of summer bedding starts soon. You can report a grounds maintenance issue here.
Street cleansing - crews are out road/footpath sweeping, litter picking, bin emptying etc. You can report an issue with littering here.
Street Champions – our volunteer Street Champions are out and about doing their bit to keep neighbourhoods tidy. This week they are also helping out at the Chosen Generations Church Clean-up at Hollinswood Parish Council offices at 11am on Saturday 1 June. Details about becoming a Street Champion and other volunteering opportunities here.
Environmental enforcement – our officers attended a fly tip of an old boiler with lots of packaging last week. They located the business that fitted it and the home it was fitted in. The old boiler had been left out for the scrap metal collector. The scrap metal collector removed it from the property, but took off the useful bits and then fly tipped the rest. Householders and businesses have a Duty of Care to ensure their waste is disposed of in a responsible way. If they don’t, they are liable, and failure to comply with the law could result in a hefty fine. People are advised to check who they use to dispose of waste, get details of their waste carrier licence and make sure to get a receipt.
