Mardol in Shrewsbury is to close to vehicles for three days, starting on Monday 17 August 2020, while resurfacing work is carried out
The work is part of a scheme to improve footways, crossing points, road signs, street furniture and road surfaces in Shrewsbury town centre as part of the Shrewsbury Integrated Transport Package.
The work in the town centre began earlier this year, and has now continued after being suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The resurfacing of Mardol was scheduled to be carried out towards the end of 2020. However, Shropshire Council’s contractor is now able to carry out the work much earlier than planned, meaning the work can be completed – and the roads reopened – much sooner than hoped.
Government guidance has been routinely followed, and progress has been good despite a slightly reduced workforce, which has been working hard to keep the project moving.
During the closure traffic will not be permitted between the hours of 7.30am and 4.30pm. Deliveries will be accommodated outside these hours, but parking won’t be allowed as this would obstruct the works and result in costly delays.
The council’s contractor will be speaking with individual businesses regarding deliveries and access.
