Much Wenlock A4169 HGV traffic signals

After extensive consultation in January 2016, the long-awaited HGV interactive traffic signal scheme for the A4169 New Road / Sheinton Street / The Crescent will start in 1st August.

The works will include the installation of permanent two-way traffic signals, with selective vehicle detection for HGVs and buses. Two informal crossing points, and signing and lining works, are also included. The crossing points will probably be marked in red, rather than the green in the illustration.

The work is expected to last for four weeks. Traffic management shall be used with temporary multi-way signals and lane closures. There will be no road closures. The works will be carried out by Dynniq and supervised by Mouchel on behalf of Shropshire Council.

  • Jon Best:

    I expect you are probably aware of this but the new traffic lights are no longer working correctly. For the first couple of months everything worked as advertised. Since then however I regularly see lights changing to red when there are no large vehicles travelling in either direction – or changing to red and immediately changing back to green. I presume there must be some form of maintenance/warranty on this system, so is it possible to get the suppliers to rectify the fault?
