Recently, Shropshire Council have circulated letters to residents on The Avenue in Peplow with details of resurfacing work to be carried out there between 18 and 28 March. The annotated image below is taken from the information which accompanied the letter, and shows the location of the work.
The letter reads:

Dear Resident / Business Owner
I am pleased to inform you that Kier Highways have been instructed by Shropshire Council to carry out Carriageway Resurfacing and Civils works at the above location.
Works are programmed to be carried out commencing 18th March we envisage the work being completed by 28th March.

During the closure access to the works area will be restricted to:

Finally, there is also a “future planning” entry on indicating that “A442 From Radmoor Crossroads to A53 Espley Roundabout,” will be closed for resurfacing work from 27 May to 10 June 5 April for around two weekssee this post.
