Message From Highways re: A529 Closure

I wish to update you about essential carriageway resurfacing work that is currently taking place on the A529 north of Adderley, curtailing at the Shropshire County boundary.

Works are currently approximately 1 week behind programme and it is predicted the works will over-run into mid-September during School Term Time.

On Tuesday 5th September 2016, the new school year begins and in order to accommodate the needs of parents making a school run the road closure times will be reduced to the hours 9am to 2:45pm from this date. (Currently, road closure hours are restricted to the hours of 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday during the school holiday period).

The following philosophy will remain while undertaking the works:

·         School runs aren’t affected.

·         Commuters travelling before 9am and after 5pm Monday to Friday will not be adversely affected.

·         The road will be open at the weekend, evenings and early morning.

We appreciate that this work will continue to cause some disruption to local residents and businesses and hope you will bear with us while this important work is carried out.

A signed diversion route will be in place while the road is closed. Information about the work, including diversion routes, can be found on a dedicated webpage Updates will be added to this page throughout the work to keep people informed of progress.
