This information is correct at the time of publishing but could be subject to change either due to circumstances beyond our control, or should other works come in that make it more efficient and less disruptive to reschedule

Closure details

  • Starts: 21 February 2022
  • Ends: 2 March 2022
  • Running: Night-time
  • Central Shropshire

Heathgates Roundabout and Ditherington Road, Shrewsbury are due to be resurfaced from 21 February to 2 March as part of Shropshire Council’s annual resurfacing programme for 2021/22.

The work, which will consist of resurfacing, new road markings and other improvements, will take place overnight from 8pm to 6am, Monday to Sunday.

Due to the nature of the works, and to ensure they are completed in a safe manner, it will be necessary to close the road to traffic from 8pm to 6am. Lane closures and diversions will be in place as detailed in the road closure and diversion plans (attached to this page). These closures and diversions will be in place from 8pm until 6am each day.

A section of road from the traffic lights towards the town centre will be left to prevent Severn Trent digging up the newly-laid surface when they carry out installations for a new development.

The programme is liable to change in the event of unforeseen circumstances or adverse weather. All changes will be highlighted on 'advanced warning' signs.

Businesses within the extent of the works closures will be consulted and letters will be delivered to local residents before work starts.

  • Essential highway personnel
  • Local residents who live and reside within the road closure
  • Businesses located within the closure (if applicable)
