Pride In Our Community improvements - week beginning 15 April 2019

Here’s what crews are working on this week and next, as well as links to more information and to report any issues you are aware of.

Roadworks and traffic management schemes - get live updates on Telford and Wrekin here.

Drains – a gully tanker is continuing with the year-long programme to clean and empty the borough’s 33,000 drains. You can report a drainage issue here.

Gritting – our gritters will be out if needed. Here’s the Met Office 5 day forecast for Telford.

Potholes - crews are filling potholes that have been reported to us. Please report any you spot here.

Street lighting – the main programme to upgrade street lights to more energy efficient LEDs is complete. Crews are, however, revisiting various locations to upgrade any less straightforward lights e.g. where access had been an issue on their initial visit. If you have a question about street lighting, please email

Grounds maintenance and litter picking – grounds maintenance crews are out as usual this week – mowing and tidying. You can report a grounds maintenance issue here
Street cleansing crews are also out and about - road/footpath sweeping, litter picking, bin emptying and cleaning chewing gum in Southwater.  Anyone wanting to report an issue with littering in their area can do so here.

Street Champions and #GBSC– Keep Britain Tidy Great British Spring Clean continues with various clean ups happening locally this week. On Tuesday 16 April, a group will be litter picking Redhill Ecology Park, meet at St Georges & Priorslee Parish Council at 10am – all welcome and refreshments + mosaic crafts from noon to 1.30pm. On Wednesday 17 April, the Donnington & Muxton Youth Club based at Donnington Community Hub will be doing a sponsored litter pick from 10am to 2pm with proceeds going to Meningitis Now.  Our Street Champions are also out and about doing their bit to keep neighbourhoods tidy.  More information about becoming a Street Champion and other volunteering opportunities here.
