  • Much Wenlock A4169 HGV traffic signals (2)

    The new HGV traffic lights in Sheinton Street A4169 were switched on in the second week in September.  The first couple of days saw them working as intended and I was pleased to see an email from a local resident who said “…thank you … for the highly organised manner in which highways operatives installed…

  • 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…

  • Waiting restrictions in Much Wenlock

    There has been a lot of discussion about how best to manage on-street parking in Much Wenlock. With 120-plus car park spaces and a Pop & Shop scheme that enables shoppers to park in our four Shropshire Council car parks for fifteen minutes free of charge, there shouldn’t be a problem.

This work was cancelled at short notice earlier in the year. As part of the works the junction with Stretton Road will also be…

  • 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…

  • Roadworks postponed

    The A458 Harley Bank road closure scheduled for 24th March was postponed at very short notice for contractual reasons. The signage element of the scheme was as a result of the fatal road accident which occurred in 2012. The signage works are still to be carried out this spring, using temporary traffic signals. I have…

Some preliminary works may take place in early February, with two-way traffic lights in place. I have intervened to ensure that the more intrusive work will not take place until the schools…
