Haughton Road, Shifnal to be resurfaced

Related topics: Highways, transport and environmental maintenance

Haughton Road, Shifnal is to be resurfaced from Tuesday 2 to Monday 8 July 2024.

Work will take place between 9.30am and 4pm each day, and the road will be closed during these times.

During the closures a signed diversion will be place – and access/egress for properties  and businesses within the closure will be maintained when safe to do so. Depending on their vehicle type, road users may be able to choose an alternative diversion route.

Access will also be maintained for people voting in the general election on 4 July.

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

Haughton Lane is one of more than 60 stretches of road in Shropshire set to be resurfaced in the 2024/25 financial year, as Shropshire Council continues its programme of work to improve the county’s roads.

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/

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

  • Local residents who live and reside within the road closure
  • Businesses located within the closure (if applicable)
  • Pedestrians, dismounted cyclists and equestrians
  • Emergency vehicles
