Mile End work progressing well – but night closures remain

Related topics: Economic growth

Work on a major scheme to redevelop the Mile End roundabout in Oswestry is progressing well – albeit some night closures are still in place to ensure the programme remains on track.

Traffic began being diverted onto the newly built northern road alignment and roundabout earlier this month, and now the planned overnight work is taking place providing the southern tie-in.

We appreciate it can be an inconvenience, but once the work is complete it will provide a much better experience for motorists and lead to a huge economic boost for the whole region.

Similar to the work with the north tie-in, the road surface level will be built up each night by placing a layer of surfacing, and the road reopened each morning to traffic.

We hope that the night closures will end by December 13th, by which time the new south alignment will be open to the public. While every effort will be taken to meet the date, operational and weather-related matters beyond our control may cause this to be amended.
