Popular footpath receives “makeover”

One of the most widely-used public footpaths in the parish, leading from Marlborough Way and joining to Ironbridge Way, has received a “sizeable makeover” this month.

The section in question regularly suffered from muddy conditions and standing water whenever it rained. Some nearby steps had also eroded, making them difficult to climb and potentially dangerous.

In cooperation with the Community Action Team (CAT), the footpath has now been raised and resurfaced to prevent future flooding. Additionally, the steps have been revamped and are safer to use now.

This scheme was delivered in cooperation with Telford & Wrekin Council rights of way officer and our CAT community liaison officer, after discussions late last year identified it as an area for possible improvement.
