What can you expect during the work?

Shifnal - artist's impressionThe contractor will be issuing an introductory letter to all businesses and residential properties within the site boundary before works start. This will highlight useful contact details and provide a background to the company.

Shifnal - existing viewWhilst works of this nature are disruptive, every effort will be made to ensure businesses can continue to trade and accesses will be maintained throughout. Pedestrian and traffic marshals will be available each day to assist with directions for deliveries and ensuring that people can go about their day to day business safely.

Shifnal - artist's impression 2The contractor’s site agent will visit premises within the site area on a regular basis to ensure all is in order, identify any issues or specific requirements that we may need to address and to generally ensure that we're looking after your needs as best as we can. There's also the option to drop by at the site office and talk to the site agent directly, although it's advisable to make an appointment as there will be construction machinery operating, and it will also be easier to facilitate a visit if these can be diarised.

Obviously with works of this nature some of the operations are noisy, but this will be minimised as much as possible and dust suppression measures will be used when cutting paving slabs and kerbs etc.

Shifnal - indicative streetscapeThe work areas will be clearly defined and barriered off, pedestrian crossing points and walkways will be clear and accessible, and access to premises will be maintained so that businesses can continue to trade effectively and residents can access their homes.

Please respect our workers space and safety by driving carefully and slowly through the roadworks. Everyone is entitled to a safe workplace. Our men and women work next to moving traffic and risk injury every day.

Please only approach our site personnel if there's an absolute need to do so, and please ensure that you continue to observe current social distancing advice, as issued by the government.

These webpages will be updated throughout the work with the latest progress reports.
