Pride in Our Community improvements - week beginning 17 June 2019

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

Drains – with three months of rain in one week in the county last week, crews have been working round the clock to clear drains that struggled to cope due to the relentless heavy rain. More rain is forecast, so they have another busy week ahead. As well as the reactive work, crews will be out with the gully tanker cleaning drains in Ketley and Oakengates. You can report a drainage issue here.

Road marking – crews are refreshing road markings in Trench.

Potholes - crews are filling potholes that have been reported to us. This week they are in Madeley, Sutton Hill and Woodside. Please report any you spot here.

Footpaths – crews are improving footpaths in Newport, Dawley and Malinslee. 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 in areas across the borough and planting summer floral displays in Hartshill Park, Dawley Park and Dawley high street. You can report a grounds maintenance issue here.

Street cleansing - crews are out road sweeping in Muxton, Lillishall, Church Ashton and Newport. Crews are also out litter picking and bin emptying across the borough. 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. As are Richo staff (corporate Street Champions) who are working in partnership with local agencies, other businesses and a minibus full of students from Telford College to clean up the woods near Hem Lane, Halesfield on Friday. Details about becoming a Street Champion and other volunteering opportunities here.

Recycling and waste collection reminder – free food waste recycling service starts in September. More information, including FAQs, here.
