We will shortly be working across the borough as part of the 'Everyday Telford - Pride in Our Community' programme. Find out more by visiting the Pride in Our Community page.
The start date for footway slurry surfacing works in Telford and Wrekin this year will be the week commencing 10 August 2015. This work will take place across 68 sites around the Telford and Wrekin area. This is expected to be a four month programme, with the works expected to be completed by the end of November 2015. This is the second phase of our footway maintenance programme, having completed patching on each of these sites in the last 12 months.
Work will be managed by our contractor Telford and Wrekin Services, who have sub-contracted the works to JPCS.
See below for expected start dates and for each road in the programme. Please note that these works are a weather dependant process, and therefore poor weather may cause a delay to the dates shown below.
We will be amending this programme weekly as the works are completed, so please return to this page to stay informed on our progress around the Borough.

Frequently Asked Questions
Below are the answers to several common questions you may have about slurry surfacing, If we are unable to answer your question below, please contact us by calling 01952 384000, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
What is slurry surfacing? Why is the footway not being resurfaced?
Slurry surfacing is a low cost preventative treatment and should not be confused with resurfacing, where the existing surface of the footway is replaced.
The slurry mixture is a blend of bitumen emulsion, aggregate, cement and water, which will considerably extend the life of the underlying macadam.
This treatment is laid to provide a protective layer of material over the existing pavement surface. This layer will prevent wear and tear on the original surface from trafficking, and also prevent water ingress into the surface, which is a main cause of footway damage.
Will the footways need to be closed?
Footways are not normally closed to lay slurry surfacing. However, access to your property may be restricted for short periods and on busy streets traffic management is utilised to provide a safe pedestrian route around the works until the surfacing is complete.
Some sites within the programme will require a footway closure, however this will be localised to areas where there are no alternative pedestrian routes available to accommodate traffic passing the works operation. Pedestrian diversions for these closures will be signed on site.
Due to the nature of the work involved there will be short periods of time when access to properties cannot be maintained. Where there is particular access requirements please speak to the gang on site who will usually be able to accommodate people’s needs.
When does the work take place?
The surfacing work will commence on site from 10 August 2015. Our Programme is expected to continue until the end of November 2015.
Works on busier routes will not commence until 9.30am Monday to Friday and will generally be completed by 3.30pm.
However, due to the weather dependant nature of these works, works may continue beyond this time in order to complete works at a site.
Prior to the surfacing works, a number of minor operations including weed killing, sweeping and the cutting back of vegetation is required to take place. This work will start in the two weeks preceding the date mentioned in the above programme for each site, in order to ensure the existing surface is prepared for the slurry surfacing treatment.
How long will the work take?
Slurry surfacing is usually completed at each site within the day it commences, however poor weather can prevent progress, as the treatment is unable to be laid in wet conditions.
Please be aware that the surfacing material remains wet for 2 - 4 hours after application (depending on weather conditions). During this time the footway will remain unsuitable for pedestrians with restrictions on vehicular access. Walking or driving on the slurry before it has set, may result in permanent marking on your driveway and internal floors or carpets.
Will I be informed of proposed works before you arrive on site?
Signs are erected on site at least 7 days prior to works commencing. A leaflet containing further information is also delivered to properties that front the works.
The material has marked my car/home/shoes etc., can I claim for the cost of repair or replacement?
The procedures that we follow, including the erection of signs informing you about the works and its risks, we fulfil the legal obligations of the Highway Authority. Any claims that we receive will be passed to our contractor.
