A41 traffic update as at 2.45pm, 27 July, 2016

At approximately 23.00 last night, an HGV collided with a property (Fox House) at Shakeford, Hinstock on the A41.

The house is currently unoccupied, but it has been significantly damaged and the road has been closed.  The HGV is currently embedded in a supporting wall.  Before it can be removed, the building needs to be structurally supported, then made safe and the lorry removed before the road can be reopened.  It is likely that the road will remain closed throughout the day and possibly into the evening.

The main diversion route from the North is directing traffic at Ternhill Island onto the A53 towards Hodnet, then onto the A442 into the Telford and Wrekin area, then onto the B5062 at Crudgington towards Newport, before re-joining the A41.  The diversion from the South is in reverse and starts in Telford and Wrekin.

There is a diversion in place for local traffic along the A529 between Hinstock and Market Drayton.
