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 2021/2022 we will invest £21.6m to deliver over 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 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.

This £21.6m investment will be invested as follows:

  • £7.635m into roads and footpaths
  • £1.2m into Structures
  • £1.15m into drainage and council owned assets
  • £0.671m into street furniture, lighting and lines
  • £2.583m into sustainable transport, parking and safety schemes
  • £8.355m into major projects.

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.
