Temporary traffic lights in place on St Michael’s Street, Shrewsbury

Temporary traffic lights will be in place on St Michael’s Street, Shrewsbury – near its junction with New Park Road – for the next two to three weeks, after concerns were raised about the structural stability of the building at 110 St Michael’s Street.

The lights were put in place last Friday (4 June 2021) following discussions between Shropshire Council’s building control team and the building owner’s structural engineer.  The lights will remain at the site to allow temporary supports to be put in place.

While the lights are in place, drivers are being advised that delays are likely and to use park and ride, or alternative routes, to access Shrewsbury town centre.

Park and ride operates from Harlescott, Meole Brace and Oxon every 20 minutes. See here for information.

Alternative routes into Shrewsbury town centre are available via the A5112 inner ring road – Telford Way, Bage Way, Pritchard Way to Meole Brace island and the south/west of the town – with access and egress to the town centre and A5 available via the B4380 and main access roads into the town centre.

Businesses in and around the town remain open as normal.
