Essential tree cutting work in Shrewsbury

A one-day road closure will take place in Pontesbury, near Shrewsbury, on Wednesday (11 September) to allow for essential tree cutting.

Habberley Road will be closed from 9am to 3pm, from the road’s junction with Whitwell Lane to Red House Barns. A diversion will be in place.

Tree cutting work of this kind is essential to keep branches clear of overhead power lines. Where branches do come into contact with overhead lines, this may interrupt electricity supplies.

To reduce disruption to road users, we have amalgamated two separate tree cutting programmes, which means the road will be closed for one day only.

Team Manager Adrian Pope said: “We apologise for any disruption caused as a result of this essential tree cutting work.

“Fortunately, we have been able to incorporate all of the tree cutting work into one day which means we will only have to close the road for that day.

Letters about the closure have been sent to local residents and businesses.

Details of the diversion route can be found at

Anyone with questions about the closure can contact 01952 601122.
