According to roadworks.org there are roadworks planned in Hodnet which are estimated to last from 12 to 16 January.
The location of the disruption is “In Carriageway And Verge Opposite Tudor Cottage” (see map).
Traffic flow during the work will be controlled by multi-way signals which are expected to have a moderate impact on journey times.
The notice on the website misleadingly states that they will be “C2073 From Hodnet A53 North Junction To Weston Junction Marchamley”. This author suspects they mean the old A53 (i.e. the junction by The Bear).
Severn Trent Water will be carrying out the work, which is described as “Core Failure Of Carriageway Reinstatment Excavate; And Reinstate To Correct Depth Core Failure Of Carriageway Reinstatement Excavate.”
