Weekend low traffic trial

Pedestrian-friendly 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. 

The trial will remain in place until at least October 2022, when future traffic arrangements will be considered as part of the Shrewsbury Movement and Public Realm Strategy, which is being produced during the summer of 2022.

Go to the Shrewsbury Moves Engagement Hub for more information about the trial and movement arrangements in Shrewsbury.
