Mile End work on track, with traffic switch coming

Related topics: Economic growth

Work is progressing well at the Mile End roundabout in Oswestry, with motorists warned of a second traffic switch in the coming days.

The project is proceeding to plan and after completion of the eastern tie in, the second traffic switch will take place shortly and all traffic will be using the new full road alignment.

After the switch, the length of original road to the east of Mile End roundabout (between the roundabout and the new alignment) will not re-open until the completion of the project. This area of road will be used to complete the final works on the project.

Road space bookings have been made to cover the entire period through to December 17 and while every effort will be made to adhere to the dates booked, operational, logistical or weather related matters beyond our control may cause these to be amended.

On the lead up to Christmas, the project will be busy carrying out activities such as laying new surfacing for the existing roundabout, installing further lamp columns, completing the drainage installations and undertaking landscaping works.

After Christmas, activities such as further landscaping and planting will be carried out, as well as installation of fencing and the final road signage for the project.
