Commuters are being warned that essential resurfacing work is to begin on Tuesday, October 31 on the Prees Heath roundabout south of Whitchurch.

The work will take approximately nine days to complete, including the weekend, and will be undertaken under various road closures with signed diversion routes in place during these times.

Shropshire Council says it will try to maintain access to properties and businesses within the site, though vehicular access may be limited at times to ensure the safety of the workforce.

All other traffic will have to use the diversion.

A Shropshire Council spokesman said: “We are using a special product for this scheme that can take up to 24 hours to cure before the road can be used, so there will be times when you see no workforce on site.

“This site has been identified via a combination of asset management data and local engineering judgment and has been deemed in need of essential maintenance.

“As such we ask for your patience and support while the work is carried out and offer our apologies for any inconvenience that may be caused.”

Further information about the work will shortly be found on a dedicated webpage at

Updates will be added to this page throughout the work to keep you informed of progress.
