A TWO-day closure on the A528  in north Shropshire is set to create a 40-mile diversion for A-road users.

The A528 Shrewsbury to Ellesmere road will be shut between Myddle and Burlton on Thursday, November 30, and Friday, December 1, for resurfacing work to take place.

The works, which will take place between 9.30am and 4pm, will be on the A528 from Marton to the B4397 junction at Burlton.

A spokesperson for Shropshire Council said: “Access to properties with the closure will be maintained when it is safe to do so.

“Staff on site will be able to help with access.”

An ‘A-road’ diversion will be implemented, whilst some can choose a shorter alternate route.

Shropshire Council added: “A signed diversion will be in place maintaining ‘A-road’ classification.

“Depending on their vehicle type people may be able to choose their own shorter diversion route.

“During the closure there will be no access to Harmer Hill from Burlton.”
