Work being carried out at Mile End roundabout in November 2021

Work is to be carried out at and around Mile End roundabout in Oswestry from today [Monday 16 January 2023] for two weeks.

The work is to rectify drainage, kerbing and lighting issues related to the recent Mile End improvements work, that have been identified as part of surveys carried out following the work.

Work will be carried out under lane closures, from Monday to Friday.

From Monday 30 January to Wednesday 1 February, the contractor will then undertake final CCTV surveys, with lane closures in place while these are carried out.

And from Monday 6 March for six nights (not including the weekend of 11 and 12 March), the contractor will be carrying out some surfacing repairs with full night time closures in place so that the works can be carried out safely. These dates are subject to change depending on weather conditions, machinery breakdowns or availability of surfacing material which could delay the programme.

The new Mile End junction in Oswestry was offically opened in March 2022. It will ease congestion, improve the gateway to the town and open up land for new housing as well as the proposed Oswestry Innovation Park.

The work was designed and supervised by WSP, delivered by Balfour Beatty and project managed by Shropshire Council.
