Roadworks – Update: 21st January 2022

The latest information from the team managing the roadworks is that the main works on the B4368, Clun Road, are now planned to commence on the 7th February 2022 for 6-weeks.

All defects, potholes, patch repairs and localised flooding, along Church Road and the road between Whitcott Keysett and the B4368, will be carried out before the main works commence. Works are planned for week commencing 24th to 28th January 2022.

The road will be closed between 9am and 3pm each day, Monday to Friday. Emergency vehicles (Fire & Rescue and Ambulance services) will be accommodated in emergency situations only.

Although the official diversion will be signposted along the B-road, over into Wales, it is expected that local traffic will use Church Road and through Whitcott Keysett.  ‘NO HGV’ signs will be placed on these roads.

Although not ideal, this situation is better than previously announced when the road was to have been closed around the clock and for 7 weeks.  The commitment to address issues on the local diversion route is also welcome.

The next Parish Council meeting will be held in The Community Centre on Wednesday 9th March 2022 at 7:30pm. The meeting will also be accessible via Zoom
