Stabilisation works are due to be undertaken at the B4373 Ironbridge Road, Broseley. The works involve reinstating the slipped embankment, new drainage system and reinstatement of the carriageway.
In order to undertake these stabilisation works, the road will be closed for a period of seven weeks to minimise disruption. The works are programmed to start on 12 September 2022 for 14 weeks, with the road closed to traffic for 24 hours a day from the 31 October 2022 until the completion of the works. Normal working hours will be between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
The target completion date is 16 December 2022.
During the road closure, HGV and local traffic will be diverted via local roads using a signed one-way diversion route. Through traffic, which would normally use Ironbridge Road, will be diverted via Much Wenlock and Buildwas.
Inevitably there will be some disruption and delays during these works, for which we apologise in advance, and Shropshire Highways would gratefully appreciate your co-operation during the works so that we can be as efficient, and cause as little inconvenience to you, as possible.
The contractor carrying out the work will be Kier, with supervision being carried out by WSP on behalf of Shropshire Council.
If you have any queries during the works please contact Shropshire Council Highways Customer Services Centre on 0345 678 9006.
