2 sections of fencing collapsed between footpath and motorway along the north side of the M54 between the bridges on Ercall Lane and Golf Links Lane. Initially reported to Telford & Wrekin Council over a year ago. Recent work appears to have been completed at the western end of this path, but these 2 sections have not been touched.

  • Thank you for your patience whilst our inspector reviewed your report.

    Our inspector visited the location and completed a temporary repair where the fence had fallen over. The fence was re erected temporarily and we have covered the area with orange mesh fence.

    As such, a permanent repair is planned.

    We will provide a further update to confirm when the work has been completed or, in exceptional circumstances, a revised date.

    Kind regards Highways England
