Box Road Update - April 2015

Telford town centre Box Road to go two way on selected roads from Friday 3rd April 2015 for a limited time.

Major improvement works to Telford town centre’s Box Road are nearly complete and will open two way on three sides Friday 3rd April 2015.

Woodhouse Central, Lawn Central and Grange Central are due to open two way on 3rd April in time for the Easter weekend.

Minor finishing works, including final landscaping, traffic signs and completion of the street lighting will be completed throughout April.

Telford & Wrekin Council began works to turn the Box Road two way 18 months ago to make the town centre a safer place for pedestrians and cyclists, improve traffic flows and improve access to major new developments such as the new Southwater complex.

Following the Easter weekend and depending on the weather, the final decorative finish will be applied to the central reserve on Lawn Central and Grange Central.

Lawn Central will be first to have this work done and will operate one way, east bound (towards Hollinswood, away from Odeon) during the work. Work on Grange Central will follow the completion of work to Lawn Central and Grange Central will operate one way, south bound (towards the Southwater multi storey car park, away from Hollinswood) when the central reserve works are carried out.

Once the works are complete, the three roads will open fully as two way systems permanently. 

Coach Central will be the last of the sides of the Box Road to turn two way, improvement works are continuing with a date for completion to be confirmed. 

Full details of the works can be found on the Telford and Wrekin Council Website.
