Town Walls in Shrewsbury to close for resurfacing work

Related topics: Highways and environmental maintenance

Resurfacing is set to be carried out shortly as part of improvement works between Town Walls and Claremont Bank in Shrewsbury.

The work is being carried out as part of the Shrewsbury Integrated Transport Package (SITP) – a package of  measures designed to improve the transport system in Shrewsbury by improving key junctions and enhancing the town centre.

One of the final stages of the Town Walls to Claremont Bank work is the resurfacing of the road. This work will take place between 22 April and 5 May [2019] and will require the roads to be fully closed to traffic so that work can be carried out safely.

As with previous closures, the road will be closed from Beeches Lane (Town Walls) at its junction with Williams Way, with diversions routes in place. Traffic Management operatives will be stationed at each closure point to allow access for residents and businesses only.

In addition, from the week commencing 15 April there will be some short-term closures to allow new streetlighting and kerbing to be installed within narrow areas on Claremont Bank. These clsoures are only expected to last daytime working hours.

Once the resurfacing work is complete, the final paving will be completed on the new footpaths, with works anticipated to be fully complete by mid-May [2019].

Work being carried out as part of the Town Walls to Claremont Bank improvements includes: the upgrading of footway materials to improve the aesthetic appearance of the area; improvements to footway crossing facilities along the whole route; improved road layout and parking, and the carriageway resurfacing.
