A major road between Telford and Newport will be closed for 14 days from Monday, November 22.

The A518 from Telford’s clocktower roundabout to Kynnersley Drive, Lilleshall, will be closed to all traffic between 9.30am and 6.00pm for resurfacing works.

Diversion routes are set to be put in place but heavy good traffic faces a longer way around because of weight restrictions in the area.
