UK Power Solutions is to carry out work to install an electrical cable from the substation on Broseley Close and along Oteley Road, up to Thrower Road, to provide a power supply to the LIH development.

Work will be completed in two phases. The first phase will take place from 18 to 29 October 2021, so that the traffic management measures are removed prior to the build up to the Christmas period.

The second phase of works will then continue from 9 January 2022 for a period of up to four weeks.

During the works temporary traffic lights will be required, which will be manually controlled by a traffic management operative from 7.30am to 6.30pm.

The traffic management measures will be reduced down when it is possible and safe to do so.

Shropshire Council’s¬†inspection team will monitor works as they progress to ensure the contractors are working efficiently and to the agreed timescales.

Residents and affected businesses will be notified of the works and advanced warning signs will be placed on site two weeks prior to the scheme starting.
