New Road Layout

‘Shifnal Town Council have become aware of recent concerns by residents raised on social media in relation to the new road layout of the town centre improvement scheme that is currently being completed. It appears that in particular there is growing concern regarding the use of the zebra crossing by pedestrians within the scheme and the timeframe for advisory signage to be installed to ensure that both pedestrians and motorists are aware of the new layout and design including the introduction of the new 20mph speed limit through the designated area. . As a result Shifnal Town Council have written to Shropshire Council highlighting these concerns and asking for the signage to be installed as soon as possible, in the meantime for temporary signage to be placed to enhance user awareness. In addition, the safety audit due to be undertaken by Shropshire Council following the completion of the scheme should be undertaken as soon as possible to ensure that any issues that could have arisen since the introduction of the scheme are addressed as rapidly as possible.’
