Dual carriageway maintenance work started
Essential maintenance works will be carried out across Telford and Wrekin’s dual carriageway network over the next three weeks, as part of the borough’s ‘Pride in our Community’ £55.6m four-year investment programme designed to keep the borough moving
The yearly maintenance dual carriageway works will be led by Balfour Beatty - Telford & Wrekin Council’s Highways Contractor.
The work is carried out between 6-29 July, together with Idverde, the Council’s grounds maintenance and street cleansing contractor as well as Prysmian, the Council’s Street Lighting contractor.
Works started on Monday, 6 July and are due to include gully cleansing, grass cutting, street light replacements, essential carriage way repairs, sweeping and hedge cutting in various borough locations such as Trench Lock, Hollinswood, Randlay, Rampart Way and others.
The majority of dual carriageway maintenance works will be undertaken overnight under full road closures to minimise disruption.
The full works programme and diversion routes are published on the Council’s website – they are subject to change, depending on weather conditions and unforeseen circumstances, updates will be published on the same website.
