Pride in Our Community improvements - week beginning 29 July 2019

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

Maintenance/cleansing on dual carriageways - continues until 31 July, with our highways and grounds/street cleansing crews working on the A442, A464, A4169, A5, A518, A5223, B4373 and B5072. Work includes gully cleaning, grass cutting, hedge cutting, tree works, litter picking, road sweeping, street light replacements, + repairs to the carriageway and roadside barriers. There will be a number of temporary, overnight road closures to allow crews to safely do the work and minimise disruption to motorists. More information here.

Drains - crews are out with the gully tanker cleaning drains in Brookside and Stirchley again this week. You can report a drainage issue here.

Road marking - crews are refreshing road markings in Admaston and Bratton.

Road surfacing – crews are in Aqueduct (Majestic Way) and Leegomery (Whitchurch Drive).

Potholes - crews are filling potholes that have been reported to us. This week they are in Aqueduct, Coalbrookdale, Lawley, Little Dawley and Malinslee. Please report any you spot here.

Footpaths - crews are improving footpaths in Aqueduct, Dawley, Hadley, Leegomery, Shawbirch, Trench, Wellington and Wrockwardine Wood. 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 grass cutting in areas across the borough.  You can report a grounds maintenance issue here.

Street cleansing - crews are out litter picking in Woodside, Stirchley and Halesfield, bin emptying across the borough and road sweeping in Halesfield. You can report an issue with littering here.

Environmental enforcement - Our officers are investigating reports of an unmarked truck washing concrete into a drain in Trench Lock. The loose concrete mix ran 40-50 metres along the edge of a road and blocked the drain which our contractors are going to have to unblock. Officers are trying to track down the driver. If you spot someone doing something that you believe may be harmful to the environment please let us know by emailing

Street Champions - our volunteer Street Champions are out and about doing their bit to keep neighbourhoods tidy. On Saturday 3 August, our wonderful Woodside Street Champions are litter picking and welcome anyone who wants to help out.  Meet at Park Lane Community Centre at 12noon. Details about becoming a Street Champion and other volunteering opportunities here.
