Planned highways and transport projects

pride in our community logo

We have 626 miles of road, 743 miles of footpaths, 132 cycle ways, 20,000 street lights, 120 roundabouts, around 400 parks and open spaces and around 15 million trees.

As part of the Council’s 4 year investment programme to Protect, Care and Invest to create a better borough, between 2020 and 2024 we are investing over £50m to keep neighbourhoods safe, clean and well connected. The ‘Pride in Our Community’ programme will deliver improvements to infrastructure including roads, footpaths, parking, sustainable transport, street furniture, drains and structures.

Our highways vision is to ‘Keep Telford Moving’ and in 20/21 we will invest £22m to deliver 200 improvement schemes across the borough.

The 12-month programme includes road safety schemes, the creation of more residential parking spaces in local neighbourhoods, road improvements, footpath improvements, drainage works as well as work on highways structures such as bridges.

The latest findings by the Department for Transport show that the condition of our roads are better than the regional and national averages, which is quite an achievement given the current financial challenges we face. We are also ranked 3rd out of 45 unitary authorities for public satisfaction.

Major maintenance schemes in 2020/21 will include:

  • A41 and A518 Improvements (Newport Innovation Park)
  • A442 Structures - Major Structures repairs to critical bridges at Hollinswood and Stirchley
  • A442 - Brockton Loops resurfacing
  • A442 Northbound – Resurfacing works in vicinity of Randlay Interchange
  • Beverley Roundabout
  • Stafford Park 10 and 6.

In addition the programme of work includes:

  • footway surface treatments - 30,000m2
  • carriageway surface treatments - 95,000m2
  • other resurfacing and patching improvements to roads
  • 9 road safety schemes
  • road marking improvements across the borough
  • residential parking schemes to create another 50+ parking spaces
  • work on major structures, for example; bridges, tunnels, retaining walls, etc.
  • drainage improvements.

These improvements will be delivered in partnership with the Council's new highways contractor Balfour Beatty Living Places.

In addition to planned works, we also carry out reactive maintenance to keep the travelling public safe. We are working with Balfour Beatty to look after our roads, footpaths and infrastructure - visit our YouTube channel to watch the 'keeping Telford and Wrekin Moving' video to find out interesting facts and figures.
