Pride in Our Community improvements - week beginning 3 June 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.

Pride in Our Community improvements - week beginning 3 June 2019

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

Road marking – crews are refreshing road markings in The Nedge and Wrockwardine Wood & Trench and installing some double yellow lines in some areas there.

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 Wellington, St Georges, Apley and Horsehay. Please report any you spot here.

Footpaths – crews are improving footpaths in Newport (Mere Close and Bracken Way). 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

Grounds maintenance – crews are out as usual this week – grass cutting and tidying. 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 – this week is National Volunteers’ Week, and as usual our volunteer Street Champions are out and about doing their bit to keep neighbourhoods tidy. Volunteering is a great way to give something back, help others and meet new friends.  Details about becoming a Street Champion and other volunteering opportunities here.

Environmental enforcement – our officers take action against anyone caught littering.  Anyone caught littering (cigarette butts and chewing gum are litter too) risks being fined £80.  People throwing litter from vehicles are also committing a crime – the fine for littering from a vehicle is £150.  Surely cheaper for people to put rubbish in a bin! Please help us to keep Telford and Wrekin tidy, and if you spot an issue with littering let us know.
