The six-week process ends on April 13 and includes exhibitions at four venues across Shrewsbury, giving residents, businesses and road users the opportunity to register their comments about the planned GBP71 project. The scheme, which now incorporates the previously separate Oxon Link Road scheme, will connect the A5 at Welshpool Road roundabout in the west to the Ellesmere Road roundabout in the north, with new bridges over the River Severn and the Shrewsbury to Chester railway line. It has been opposed by environmental campaigners and Green Party councillor Julian Dean, who described the road as a "20th century solution for a 21st century problem".

The sessions will provide the opportunity to find out more about the scheme and its route, access points, environmental impact assessment and mitigation, how the road will look and provision for cyclists, pedestrians and horse riders.

A planning application is expected to be submitted in May.
