Major infrastructure improvements in Ironbridge

There are major infrastructure improvement works planned across the gorge during the autumn/winter months which will mean some roads will be closed and diversions in place. Businesses will remain open as usual throughout the works and access maintained. More details will be provided on these in the coming weeks.

These are essential works that need to be carried out and appreciate this will call some disruption but the council has worked hard to combine projects and ensure seven day working where possible to minimise this.
