Cadent Gas will be replacing a section of cast iron gas main on Monkmoor Road, Shrewsbury – between Crowmere Road and Abbey Foregate – from 20 March to 12 May [2023].

During the first two weeks of the work Cadent Gas will have a temporary one-way closure on Monkmoor Road preventing traffic travelling onto Monkmoor Road from Abbey Foregate. This is to allow the contractors to safely undertake the first section of works between the Abbey Foregate junction and King Street junction.

Whilst the one-way closure is in force a signed diversion route will be in place, with access maintained for businesses and residential properties at all times.

As the operatives move away from the Abbey Foregate junction and progress further along Monkmoor Road, the remaining sections of works will be undertaken under temporary traffic lights, which will be manually controlled from 7.30am to 6.30pm.

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

Cadent Gas will have their customer liaison teams on site to notify affected residents and businesses, and advanced warning signs will be erected two weeks prior to works starting.
