Oswestry Mile End work captured in latest drone images

Work at Oswestry’s Mile End roundabout is well under way – as these incredible images show.

Shropshire Council and Balfour Beatty are working around the clock at the site to get the work complete as soon as possible.

The project will ease congestion, improve the gateway to the town and open up land for the proposed Oswestry Innovation Park.

Balfour Beatty sent up a drone to capture the latest work – with these stunning results. The existing Mile End Junction is a five-arm roundabout with one exit that was unused.

Housing sites already allocated through the current Local Plan in Oswestry require improvements to the road network to enable approved sites to be developed.

Shropshire Council have accessed funds from the Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF) through Homes England and the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) for this project where a new roundabout layout is being constructed.
