Telford – Rampart Way & Hall Park Way
The Telford Town Centre Connectivity Package is a scheme of highway infrastructure improvements aimed at supporting the delivery of the Council’s Central Telford Area Action Plan (CTAAP) in delivering new developments, jobs and housing in Telford Town Centre. This package forms phase 2 of the Telford Town Centre improvements following on from the recent improvements to the Box Road. There are two main elements to this scheme which are the replacement of the Telford Central Footbridge and the dualling of Rampart Way and Hall Park Way.
Telford suffers from a lack of direct connection between the A442 and M54. As such high volumes of traffic use Rampart Way to connect between the A442 and M54 as well as a large amount of through traffic from the surrounding area trying to access Junction 5 to the M54. With the predicted level of growth in the Town Centre the surrounding roads will continue to become busier. The dualling of Hall Park and Rampart Way will act as an outer ring road to the Town Centre helping to alleviate traffic on the Box Road and improve journey times between the A442 and M54.
Griffiths has been appointed by Telford & Wrekin Council as the main contractor to carry out the dualling of these two busy roads and work commenced in mid- October 2016.
