Weekend low traffic trial

Have your say on the new weekend traffic arrangements in Shrewsbury. 

Roads in the centre of Shrewsbury – Wyle Cop (uphill), High Street and Shoplatch – are currently closed to through-traffic from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays to help reduce traffic in the town at weekends. 

An official consultation has been launched which will help councillors decide whether to make the arrangements permanent in the future. 

Go to the Shrewsbury Moves Engagement Hub for more information about the trial, and to answer a range of questions about what they think of the scheme.
