Traffic and road safety schemes

Pride in Our Community logo

The Council has a 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.

Our vision is to ‘Keep Telford Moving’ and in 2020/2021 we will invest £22m to deliver 200 improvement schemes across the borough as part of the Pride in Our Community programme.

The programme of work includes:

  • improvements to roads
  • improvements to footpaths
  • parking  schemes  
  • sustainable transport
  • street furniture
  • drainage improvements
  • work on major structures.

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.

Proposed improvements over the next 12 months
