Oswestry – Church Street – experimental one-way and parking restrictions

Start Date:
1st September 2020

End Date:
30th June 2020

Start Time:
0001

End Time:
2359

Description: This experimental one-way traffic order will address concerns regarding pedestrian safety on the B5069 Church Street in Oswestry, and support active travel to help the country emerge from the coronavirus crisis following the Transport Secretary’s statement on coronavirus (COVID-19) on 9 May 2020.

The removal of a traffic lane and a loading bay, and the relocation of the disabled bay to Festival Square, will enable the allocation of existing carriageway space to pedestrians to assist with safe distancing measures on both sides of the road.

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

THE SHROPSHIRE COUNCIL (VARIOUS ROADS, OSWESTRYY) (EXPERIMENTAL ONE WAY AND WAITING RESTRICTIONS) ORDER 2020

Shropshire Archives reopening survey

Start Date:

End Date:
9th July 2020

Start Time:
00.01

End Time:
23.59

Shropshire Archives preserves and makes accessible documents, books, maps, photographs, plans and drawings relating to the historic county of Shropshire, past and present. They usually have around 6,000 people visit their building on Castle Gates, Shrewsbury each year, with many more using its website resources and contacting us via phone, email and online.

During the coronavirus pandemic, they have been accessible online, and staff have been answering queries. They’re now keen to welcome people back, to visit them onsite and make use of more of the resources they have available. They will be making some changes to ensure the health and safety of staff and visitors.

To help Shropshire Archives prepare for reopening, they have a few questions. They would like to understand how you’d like to use Shropshire Archives over the coming months whilst they continue to respond to the coronavirus pandemic. They want to learn of any concerns you may have so that measures can be in place to make you feel more comfortable when using the Shropshire Archive services.
