Roadworks in Sheinton Street

As I predicted a few weeks ago, the A4169 Sheinton Street, near Station Road, had to be closed for urgent sewer replacement works. These were completed and a manhole constructed so that future access may be easier. Despite careful planning, there was criticism of the diversion arrangements and I am holding a meeting shortly to see what lessons can be learnt.

You may recall that the gas main replacement works on the Broseley-Bridgnorth B4373 overran by some weeks last year. The compensation paid by National Grid Gas will fund a number of highways improvements in the areas affected. For Much Wenlock, this will benefit Merrywell Lane where I anticipate some 300 yards or so of the road will be completely overhauled during the school holidays this summer. Please watch out for further news.
