Drivers using Mile End roundabout are facing another change to how they use the traffic system – but the project is on-track to be completed on-time.

in the next few days, Shropshire Council says a second "traffic switch" will be introduced, which will see the length of road between the existing and the new roundabouts closed for nearly two weeks.

It will mean all traffic using Mile End will be using the new road layout, with the stretch between the two islands, east of the old Mile End roundabout, closed until the project is completed.

"The project is proceeding to plan and after completion of the eastern tie in, the second traffic switch will take place shortly and all traffic will be using the new full road alignment," said Shropshire Council in an update on the system.

"After the switch, the length of original road to the east of Mile End roundabout – between the roundabout and the new alignment – will not re-open until the completion of the project. This area of road will be used to complete the final works on the project.

"Road space bookings have been made to cover the entire period through to December 17 and while every effort will be made to adhere to the dates booked, operational, logistical or weather related matters beyond our control may cause these to be amended."

In the lead-up to Christmas, further work including laying new surfacing for the existing roundabout, installing more lamp columns, completing the drainage and landscaping will take place.

Then after Christmas, further landscaping and planting will be carried out, as well as installation of fencing and the final road signage for the project ahead of its completion.
