Coppice Green Lane, Shifnal roadworks progressing well

Related topics: Highways and environmental maintenance / My area

The roadworks at Coppice Green Lane, Shifnal are progressing very well and the road closure that is in place will be removed on Tuesday 5 September 2017.

Although the work will not be fully completed, the closure will be removed on Tuesday 5 September and replaced with a daytime closure only, between 9.30am – 2pm for the remainder of the week until Friday 8 September. This will enable school traffic, buses and residents to access premises and properties outside of the closure times.

A full one-day closure will still be required on one of the subsequent weekends to complete the carriageway surfacing works and any other outstanding works after this period will be undertaken using temporary traffic signals or alternative traffic management over subsequent days. Streetlighting will be installed during the half term week in October. There are no further closures planned.

Steve Davenport, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for highways and transport, said:-

“We are sorry for the inconvenience that was caused during this time and have significantly reduced the anticipated work completion date to ensure minimum disruption to road users.”
