Shrewsbury Town Centre-Road Restrictions

New road restrictions are now in place in Shrewsbury Town Centre. Shropshire Disability Network are aware some of our members who have blue badges have been issued with fines regarding the changes that came into place on 9th July 2021. The experimental changes could last up to 18 months. As these changes are experimental, so it is extremely  important that if you,  your family and friends are affected, that you let Shropshire Disability Network know by emailing membership@shropshire-disability.net and if you can also tell Shropshire Council about your concerns that is important too.

What are the restrictions? Shropshire Council website says “This prohibition of motor vehicles, no right turn, and changes to the waiting and loading restrictions order is proposed to trial a potential reshaping of the physical public realm and traffic management arrangements within Shrewsbury town centre, promoting pedestrian safety, active travel alternatives and movement around the town.

What locations are affected? Dogpole, High Street, Mardol Head, Milk Street, Shoplatch, The Square, Wyle Cop – Shrewsbury

What about Buses and Taxis? Shropshire Council website says “Buses and taxis will be allowed to travel on weekdays only, with no motor vehicles allowed at the weekend. Changes to the waiting and loading restrictions are also proposed, reducing the number of vehicles in the town and providing additional space for pedestrians and cyclists during the main trading hours.

The above aims to provide both improved safety for all road users and quality of life for the local community, and will be applied on an experimental basis for up to 18 months”

A Consultation was started on Friday 9th July 2021 and ends on Sunday 9th January 2022. SDN says “If you are affected by these changes, please respond sooner rather than later to the consultation.
