Pride in your Community –
Improvements in your area
We will shortly be working in your area as part of the ‘Everyday Telford – Pride in Your Community’ programme. The programme focuses on environmental and social issues that we know are important to residents. It is an investment programme to be delivered across the borough over a period of 2 years. Pride in your Community is also aimed at improving areas where businesses are located to support new and existing businesses and to assist with local jobs.

The start date for footway slurry surfacing works in Telford & Wrekin this year will be 10th August 2015. This work will take place across 68 sites around the Borough, within a four month programme, with the works expected to be completed by early December. A list of sites for this project has been attached.
Before the slurry surfacing is carried out, information boards will be put up in all of the locations and residents will be informed to ensure that disruption will be kept to a minimum, however short term localised footway closures may be required in order to facilitate some of the works. This will be localised to areas where there are no alternative pedestrian routes available to accommodate traffic passing the works operation. Pedestrian diversions for these closures will be signed on site.
In advance of this work, it is necessary to undergo some preparation on each of the locations attached. This work will be ongoing from Monday 27rd July and will consist of weed killing, minor vegetation removal and cleaning of the existing footway surface in order to prepare the road for slurry surfacing.
Works on each site should last for no more than one day. Slurry surfacing is a weather dependant process, and therefore may be delayed by any periods of extended poor weather.
Further information will be available to the public via the council website, with a programme and frequently asked questions provided at www.telford.gov.uk/footwayslurry
The Principal Contractor for this work will be Telford & Wrekin Services, with the surface dressing work being carried out on their behalf by JPCS
