In 2019/20 our aim is to further improve our road network and highway assets. Some £12m will be invested during the year, delivering 222 improvement schemes across the borough as part of the Pride in Our Community programme.

The programme of work includes:

  • improvements to roads
  • road safety schemes
  • road marking
  • improvements to paths and footways
  • residential parking schemes to create another 400+ parking spaces
  • work on major structures, for example; bridges, tunnels, retaining walls, etc.
  • drainage improvements.

View information about the planned works.

Telford & Wrekin Council receive a high level of requests for traffic and road safety schemes which can range from speeding concerns, collisions concerns, parking issues etc. Each year we prioritise and deliver a number of schemes to help tackle these reported issues. As part of this, we consult with the public to ensure those who are impacted by the proposed changes have an opportunity to provide their comments.

It is considered that the public consultation will be a direct test of public support for one or a combination of the options presented before proceeding to detailed design. The outcome of the public consultation will be reviewed in detail and a decision will be made based on the content of the comments received in the context of the wider transport network.

Factors that will be taken into account will include, but not necessarily be limited to:

  • road safety
  • network operation
  • level of support
  • detail of any objections.
