Work to resurface a two-mile stretch of the A41 – from Bletchley Dual End to Upper College junction – is being carried out by Shropshire Council and its partner Kier from 11 to 30 July [2022].

It’s part of Shropshire Council’s annual resurfacing programme, which will see more than 40 stretches of road treated this year – including 11 in July.

Last week, Dean Carroll, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for highways visited the site to see the work being carried out and find out more.

He said:

“The A41 is one of the busiest roads in Shropshire. It’s a two-mile stretch from the north end of the dual carriageway up through the Sandford bend,

“It’ll take about a fortnight to completely resurface, but when it’s done there’ll be a fantastic new road surface laid down for people to drive on.”

Other roads being resurfaced in the coming weeks are:

  • 11 to 22 July: New Park Road, Shrewsbury
  • 18 to 26 July: U8260 – Oldfield Cottages to Tedstill
  • 25 to 30 July: C4256 – Oreton Road
  • 25 July to 2 August: C6196 – Mardu Lane
  • 25 July to 14 August: Water Street, Shrewsbury

For more information about each scheme, see and search the interactive map on the one.network website.

The sites being resurfaced have been identified via a combination of local engineering judgment and asset management data as being in need of resurfacing. The sites form part of a countywide programme of schemes, scheduled to deliver the work in the most efficient and cost-effective way.

To ensure value for money, roads that are likely to need costly repairs in the future are prioritised.
