The next phase road safety improvements on a stretch of the A529 north of Adderley is to go ahead this week.
The scheme is to install bolt-down kerbs on the edge of the road, adjacent to the field, plus reflective marker posts, so that temporary traffic signals can be removed allowing two-way traffic.
Following the work a temporary speed limit will also be in place between Adderley and the county boundary to mitigate for the reduced carriageway width and to manage approach speeds.
Access to properties and business with the closure will be provided by on-site staff.
The work is being carried out as part of the Government-funded A529 Safer Road Fund scheme to improve safety between Hinstock and Audlem. Work began in October 2019 and has involved various safety improvement measures at key locations – including Mount Pleasant crossroads.
Richard Marshall, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for highways, said “The award of this Department for Transport funding has already enabled us to carry out essential and much-needed safety work and reduce risk of injury or accident on the A529 – and the work has had a huge impact on safety. I’m pleased that this next phase of work is now being carried out and I thank people for their understanding while this work is carried out.”
The Safer Road Fund work on the A529 is being carried out by Kier, supervised by WSP and project managed by Shropshire Council.
