From 9 May 2022 for up to two weeks Western Power Distribution will be carrying out cable reinforcement work on Whitchurch Road, Shrewsbury.

Work will  take place outside numbers 32 to 70 (close to Morrisons).

The works will initially be carried out under temporary traffic lights to enable Western Power’s contractors to safely complete an excavation across the road.

As the works progress the traffic management measures will be reduced with the remaining excavations completed within the pavement only.

A traffic management operative will be on site from 7am to 7pm each day to monitor and react to any traffic build up within the area.

Shropshire Council’s inspection team will monitor the work as it progresses to ensure the contractors are working efficiently and to the agreed timescales.

Residents and affected businesses will be notified in advance.
