Haycock Way and Old Potts Way in Shrewsbury is now scheduled to reopen to traffic on Saturday (29 July 2017) evening.

The roads, which have been closed since early May to enable improvement work to be carried out at Reabrook roundabout, were originally due to open later today (Friday 28 July). However, the recent bad weather has meant that the work will take slightly longer than planned. Some minor signage and cones will remain until Monday 31 July to enable the work to be completed.

To limit the impact on local businesses the next phase of work at the English Bridge Gyratory will not start until Reabrook Roundabout is complete.

Work to improve and resurface the roundabout began on Monday 8 May 2017. The work has included: carriageway widening to improve traffic flows; cycleway and footway crossing improvements; improved street lighting; extensive drainage and earthwork, safety barriers, road signs, carriageway reconstruction and resurfacing.

The work at Reabrook is being carried out as part of the Shrewsbury Integrated Transport Package (SITP) which will see £12m of inward investment in Shrewsbury’s roads and town centre over the next four years.

The work on Reabrook roundabout is part of the ‘key junctions’ element of the SITP, which also includes the already-completed work at Meole Brace roundabout and Sutton Park roundabout.

The next stage of work – at the Gyratory system and Coleham Head – is now scheduled to begin on Tuesday 1 August and last for approximately three months.
