Sandford Avenue in Church Stretton will be closed on Thursday 14 March and Friday 15 March 2024 – from 8am to 5pm each day –  for further resurfacing work.

The work will include:

  • Anti-skid surfacing leading up to the A49
  • Resurfacing on the railway bridge
  • Additional repairs at the B5477 end of Sandford Avenue.

During the work access to properties and businesses within the closure will be maintained by foot only, and staff on site will be able to assist with access.

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 on https://one.network/

Signs will be erected in the road before starting the work and the work will be completed as quickly as possible. A signed diversion route will be in place (see map).

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

  • Essential highway personnel
  • Local residents on foot who live and reside within the road closure
  • Businesses located within the closure accessible by foot
  • Pedestrians, dismounted cyclists
  • Emergency vehicles
  • Utility or public service vehicles when safe to do so.

People are asked to ensure that vehicles are not parked on the road during the day whilst the work is in progress.
