And what happens with the infrastructure around the West Midlands affects Shropshire quite greatly." from Councillor Malcolm Pate Shropshire Council leader

The hold-ups keeping ambulances waiting outside Shropshire hospitals have been going on for months, West Midlands Ambulance Service says.
The NHS trust running the hospitals in Shrewsbury and Telford earlier pointed to "unprecedented volumes of very poorly patients" at its A&E departments as a reason for the delays, which have been over an hour in some cases.
But WMAS has responded by saying it "certainly hasn't just been a problem for the last few weeks".Copyright: BBC

A trial will take place in September.
Temporary traffic lights which went up at the Limekiln roundabout in Telford over Easter have been causing delays, but Telford and Wrekin Council says it had no alternative.
The authority says the four-way lights are needed 24 hours a day for the next three weeks, because workmen have been digging deep holes while carrying out road improvements.
The roadworks are due to last until June and the council says it will talk to concerned residents and businesses and apolgises for the delays.Quote Message: We'd like to do roadworks without traffic lights in the verges, if we can we'd like to do them off-peak only, but unfortunately because of the deep excavations that will be open all the time, the lights need to be there." from Dom Proud Telford and Wrekin Council, Transport and Highways Development
