Corve Street was resurfaced by Shropshire Council’s former contractors, Ringway, in 2017. It was a very poor quality job that began to fail within weeks. It was immediately clear that the road would have be resurfaced. That work will now take place on three consecutive Sundays, 10th, 17th and 24th February. The work is timed to be least damaging to local trade, the visitor economy and buses.
I am glad this work is going ahead. It will be disruptive but Corve Street will be much the better for it.

Council’s contractors have erected signs along Sheet Road stating:
“Shropshire. Council Road Closed 28/10/18 for 4 Weeks. No Parking. 09.30-16:00”
This is nonsense. The road will be partly closed on 29 and 30 October. Four-way lights will operate on 31 October. Highways managers have issued instructions for the signs to be replaced.
Update: New signs have been put in place this morning advertising a three day closure from Monday. Continue reading “Sheet Road will NOT be closed for four weeks from Sunday (updated)”
News in this afternoon from Keir, the contractors that maintain the A49 for Highways England. The A49 will be closed at Onibury on Thursday night, 22 February, from 9pm until 6am.

Due to the closure of Upper Galdeford over the next couple of weeks and some buses will be diverted.
The 722 park and ride service will travel via Gravel Hill, Henley Road, the A49 bypass, Sheet Road, Weeping Cross and Old Street. The bus departing the town centre on the hour will call at Parys Road and Tollgate on the way back into town. The bus on the half-hour will serve the Rocks Green estate and the Steventon loop. The supermarkets will be served on the way out of town, not the way in.
