Related topics: Highways, transport and environmental maintenance

Longden Road in Shrewsbury is to be resurfaced from Monday 22 July to Wednesday 7 August 2024, with work to take place in three phases.

  • Phase 1 – 22 to 25 July: Road closure – Coleham pedestrian crossing to Belle Vue Gardens.
  • Phase 2 – 24 to 26 July: Road closure – Belle Vue Gardens to South Hermitage
  • Phase 3 – 29 July to 7 August: Road closure – South Hermitage to Longden Island.

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.

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

Longden Road is one of more than 50 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 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
