Pride In Our Community improvements - week starting August 6 2018

Here’s details on what our crews are working on this week around the borough, plus a link for you to make your nominations for the Telford Community Pride Awards and advance notice of a major scheme in the Hollies Road area of Wellington.


* Roads – highway improvements continue in Southall Road, Dawley, and New Road, Donnington (due to a water leak). Works also start in Apsen Way/Beech Close and Granville Close, Newport, Townsend Croft, Donnington and Harley Close, Dothill.


* Footpaths – improvement work on paths continues in Dawley & Aqueduct, Wrockwardine Wood & Trench and Brookside.


* Road lining – road lining crews will be working in Wellington this week on a find and fix basis at various locations across the borough.


* Signing – we have a crew undertaking survey works across the borough this week, collecting information relating to defective signing. A programme of upgrades will then take place following this initial review. We will also be making some changes to the speed limit signs along the B5063 at Walton.


* Potholes fixers – ‘Find it Fix it’ crews are filling potholes that have been reported to us. Please report any you spot here or via the Everyday Telford app.


* Improving safety around schools - we will be investing £600,000 to improve safety outside schools. This will include a range of road safety and traffic calming measures, including 20mph signing and speed indicator devices. 


* Get live updates on street works and traffic management schemes in Telford here 


* Street lighting – this week our crews are working on upgrading street lights in Hadley and Leegomery, Bridge Street, Hartshill and Lion Street in Oakengates, Shawbirch Road and Glade Way in Wrockwardine and Dawley. If you have a question about street lighting, please email streetlighting@telford.gov.uk.



* Wesley Brook footbridge – New footbridge now installed which links Everglade Road and Priorslee Primary Academy. The stretch of the footpath leading from the bridge to the primary school will be resurfaced this week - with all works completed by 10 August.


* Litter picking, grass cutting and pruning – grass cutting is still suspended due to the prolonged dry weather, but crews are continuing to mow shaded and wet areas and other edging and strimming where grass is growing.  They are also undertaking various tree works, pruning and street cleansing.  Anyone wanting to report an issue with littering in their area can do so here 


* Pride in Our Community Street Champions – volunteers are doing a champion job in our communities. To volunteer as a Street Champion in your area email . For other volunteering opportunities visit http://www.telford.gov.uk/volunteering.


* Telford Community Pride Awards 2018 – open for nominations. If you know someone who deserves to be recognised for the work they do in the community, then get nominating J. Award categories are Best Environmental Champions, Best School Environmental Project, Sporting Achievement Award, Inspirational healthy Lifestyle Award, Best Community Support Group/Individual, Social Responsibility Champions, Outstanding Educational Achievement, Outstanding Volunteer (3 awards - groups, under 18s and adults), Unsung Hero and Good Neighbours Award.  To nominate visit http://telfordcommunityawards.co.uk/


* Advance notice of upcoming work in Hollies Road and surrounding area in Wellington – work due to start on 17 Sept, and will include: the reconstruction/resurfacing of all roads and footpaths along Hollies Road, Orleton Lane, Cranage Crescent and Steventon Road with kerb replacements where needed. Signs and ironwork in these streets will be replaced and the existing traffic calming measures on Hollies Road and Orleton Lane will be upgraded.  A permanent weight restriction for through traffic on Hollies Road and Orleton Lane will be imposed to stop HGV traffic using them as a cut through. Spring Hill will also be resurfaced between the roundabout and the Orleton Lane junction. All work should be completed by mid-December.  Temporary road closures will need to be in place to deliver the improvements, but these will be phased in order to keep disruption to local residents and businesses to a minimum.
