Road closures (red line) and diversion route (blue line)

Work to resurface Church Street and Cross Street in Oswestry will be carried out from Monday 4 to Friday 29 September as part of Shropshire Council’s annual resurfacing programme.

The work is being carried out by Kier, Shropshire Council’s highways contractor.

Work will be carried out from 9.30am to 4pm, Monday to Friday under a road closure, though only one street will be closed at any one time.

While the closure is in place a signed diversion route will be in place, and access to properties within the closure will be maintained when safe to do so. Staff will be on site to assist with access.

People are being asked not to park vehicles on the road during the day whilst work is in progress.

All planned roadworks are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Any changes will be displayed on the yellow advanced warning signs and https://one.network/

During the work access to the works area will be restricted to:

  • Essential highway personnel.
  • Residents who live and reside within the road closure.
  • Businesses located within the closure (if applicable).
  • Pedestrians, dismounted cyclists and equestrians.
  • Emergency service vehicles.
