Overnight work on A49 near Onibury, Shropshire

The Highways Agency is to carry out overnight improvement work on the A49 near Onibury, Shropshire, from Wednesday 28 May to Friday 13 June.


Resurfacing will be carried out between the junction of the B4361 to just north of Onibury while high friction surfacing will be renewed and extended and additional signage and road markings provided in the vicinity of Onibury crossing.

The work requires a full closure of both carriageways between the A4117 and B4368 from 8pm to 6am each night.

On some nights it may be possible to stagger the work so the road will only be closed for shorter distances – either between the B4368 Craven Arms and A4117 or between the A4117 and B4361 Diversions will be signed and road users are advised to allow extra time for their journeys.
