Pride in Our Community improvements - week starting 9 September 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.
Road surfacing – crews are still working at Trench Lock Interchange. This is a busy interchange, so to keep disruption to a minimum, the work will be carried out overnight with road closures in place (7pm to 6am). There will be diversion signs in place and residents’ access will be maintained. More information about this and other improvement projects here.
Drains – crews are out with the gully tanker cleaning drains in at the Garrison Roundabout, A442 Stirchley Interchange and Blythbury Bridge (A464 Naird). You can report a drainage issue here.
