We're excited to announce a new package of highway improvement works collectively known as the ‘Meole Active Travel Quarter’ in support of our ambitions to unlock the potential of Shrewsbury within the next ten years. In addition to delivering on our strategic objectives, the Meole Active Travel Quarter will address long-standing needs from the local community, who have impressed the desire for real change and improved road safety throughout Meole.

The Meole Active Travel Quarter will see a redesign of the public highway at identified locations across the Meole ward, to empower individuals to choose walking, wheeling and cycling by improving accessibility and connectivity across the local highway network.

The ‘Meole Active Travel Quarter’ is comprised of the following improvement schemes:

  • Bank Farm Road: active travel quarter – upgrade the existing cycling amenities to create an active travel corridor
  • Roman Road Roundabout: enhancement works – revise the roundabout’s layout to increase movements and capacity with further measures, including two new toucan crossings (with artificial intelligence) and an enhanced footway
  • Longden Road / Mousecroft Lane: improvement scheme – improve pedestrian and cyclist connectivity with the construction of a new road hump and reallocation of footway to segregated route

The benefits of the ‘Meole Active Travel Quarter’ are expected to include:

  • Boosting the local economy
  • Improving air quality
  • Improving bus reliability
  • Improving green amenities, including planting new trees at certain locations
  • Improving mental and physical health, whilst easing pressure on the local health services
  • Improving road safety
  • Improving street lighting
  • Improving the cycling network infrastructure
  • Reducing anti-social behaviour
  • Reducing congestion on the road network as short-distance journeys will be more accessible by walking, wheeling and cycling
