Box Road Update - February 2015

The box road works are approaching the final stages which will allow for the new two way system to come into effect. 

To allow for needed resurfacing in some areas awaiting completion as part of the final stages, overnight closures will be in place for two areas over the coming weeks. From Monday 16th February, St Quentin Gate which is located opposite The International Centre and the Holiday Inn island will be closed from 7pm - 6am every night for the next three weeks. The closures are to allow resurfacing works to take place and still allow for traffic flow during peak hours. Diversions will be in place during the closure advising drivers to instead access the Town Centre box road via the A442 exiting onto Hollinsgate. 

Cherry Pink multi storey car park users are encouraged to use the ground floor level if wishing to park during these hours. However, exit will still be possible for vehicles parked on the upper levels but may incur some delays on departure from the exit onto St Quentin Gate for safety purposes. Please follow traffic officer instructions in the area for ease of access when departing after 7pm. 

The night closures on St Quentin Gate will continue until Monday 9th March. Access into all areas of the Town Centre area will be unaffected and visitors to The International Centre will also be assisted during the works in the area. All other box road routes and services in the area are unaffected. Bus users are advised to contact Arriva directly for any queries as routes will also be diverted from this area during the closures.

Following the completion of works in St Quentin Gate, it is planned for final works and resurfacing to take place on Hollinsgate. These works are to complete the area including pedestrian provisions already underway. Due to the work required, Hollinsgate will also be subject to night closures to allow reduced impact during peak drive time. Diversions will again be in place during the works via connecting routes including A442 and Ramparts Way. 

Once all planned resurfacing works are complete, the two way box road system will be open for full use. An announcement of this date will be released shortly. For full details of the box road system or any other road works, please refer to the Telford and Wrekin Council website
