Box Road Update - October 2014

Works continue as part of development of the surrounding box road and connecting links to Telford Town Centre set by Telford and Wrekin Council and The Highways Agency.  These works have meant alterations in areas and reduces the surrounding box road to a single lane of traffic for safety while works continue to change the current road structure to a two-way system and pedestrian improvements.

Please be assured that though these works are extensive, access in and around Telford Town Centre is still possible and has not prevented access to the Telford Shopping Centre or the car parks.  What is happening? Currently, works are continuing on all roads surrounding the Shopping Centre to alter into a two-way system including the building of raised divide areas, additional pedestrian crossing points and creating more pedestrian areas either side of the road to make movement safer and easier across Telford Town Centre. You will also see that islands have now been built at all corners to support the two-way system and allow easier movement across the Town Centre area. To allow for these works, there are safety barriers surrounding the works for the protection of the public, vehicles and construction teams. However though these barriers are in place, access around the Town Centre is still possible but may incur some delay during peak times. 

St Quentin Gate will have intermittent use of temporary traffic lights to help manage traffic on and around the junction for Telford Ice Rink and The International Centre during the works.

From Monday 20th - Saturday 25th October 2014, Lawn Central connecting from Woodhouse Central (island leading towards M54) and Grange Central (island leading towards Hollinswood) will be subject to overnight closures due to resurfacing and additional works from 8pm - 6am

Diversions will be in place to lead back towards Hollinswood from Hollinswood Interchange via the island by M54 junction 5. The works will also mean exit from Ash Grey car park will be onto Woodhouse Central only during these times. 

No other roads or car park access will be affected during these dates and bus routes will continue as normal with a slight diversion during your journey.
