A483

More roadworks on A483?

Highways England, the body responsible for maintaining the trunk road network in England, is looking at options for improving the road layout near Pant.

The junction of Maesbury Road and the A483 just south of Oswestry and about four miles north of Pant, is a very busy junction which has seen a number of collisions over the years.

In spite of a 50 mph section covering the junction, many see this as a dangerous junction. Recent surveying work has been undertaken by Highways England which may lead to a new design for the junction.

Any new roadworks will follow on from a recently completed major realignment of the Mile End roundabout which was undertaken to improve traffic flow, but vehicles leaving the roundabout for the A483 towards Pant and Mid Wales often use the wrong lane on the roundabout.

A spokesperson for Highways England said: “We are currently carrying out survey work around the Maesbury Road junction with the A483 near Oswestry, Shropshire.

“This survey will feed into our designs for a new road improvement scheme at this junction.

“At this stage, we are gathering the necessary information to help inform the design for the scheme. We will keep the public informed as this work progresses.”

One Response to “More roadworks on A483?”

  1. Can someone tell me who gave permission for week long traffic lights on the A483 just south of Oswestry, near the Morda turn, for repairs to a garden wall! This has led to huge tail backs as far as the llynclys cross roads. Ridiculous.
