More than £50m is being invested in Telford and Wrekin over the next three years to keep neighbourhoods safe, clean and well connected as part of the ‘Pride in Our Community’ investment programme.
The programme will deliver improvements to infrastructure including roads, footpaths, parking, sustainable transport, street furniture, drains and structures.
The vision for highways is ‘Keep Telford Moving’ and in 2021/2022 £21.6m will be invested as part of the Pride funding, to deliver more than 160 improvement schemes across the borough.
The 12-month programme includes road safety schemes, the creation of more residential parking spaces in local neighbourhoods, road and footpath improvements, drainage works as well as work on highways structures such as bridges.
What is the scheme about?
Following the Safer Streets Partnership Project in Brookside between Telford & Wrekin Council, West Mercia Police and residents, the highways team is carrying out a review and upgrade of footpaths and have committed £500k to Brookside.
Detailed surveys have identified a variety of work that needs to be undertaken, some examples include resetting/replacing kerbs and resetting of ironwork, clearing of fly tipping and the upgrade of street names where needed.
Telford & Wrekin Council have to spend on upgrading the footpaths within these estates.
There are a total of 14 estates within Brookside Avenue ring road (shown in the image below) and listed below which are being treated.
