Western Power Distribution (WPD) is undertaking urgent cable repair and replacement works throughout Market Drayton until approximately 14 June 2021.

During the works there will be temporary traffic signals and periods of phased road closures on Phoenix Bank, High Street, Church Street, Shropshire Street and St Mary’s Street.

In a statement, WPD said:

“We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to residents and motorists. The work is to replace 460m of low voltage cable that has come to the end of its working life. Urgent replacement of the cable is required to maintain and improve security of supply to all customers connected to it.”

Shropshire Council is working closely with WPD to minimise the disruption while these works are carried out, and will endeavour to monitor the works as they progress.
