Shropshire Council invests a further £1.3m improving county’s roads
Shropshire Council is investing a further £1.3 million maintaining and improving roads in Shropshire.
The resurfacing and patching work – which is due to be completed by the end of February  – will greatly enhance the road surfaces, and also play an important part in preventing potholes forming in the coming years.
Work is being carried out on Station Road, Ditton Priors; Boreton Lane, Condover; on the B4378 at Bourton; in Stottesdon (at Walton Cottages, and from Prescott to Miners Junction); and in more than 40 different locations in Much Wenlock.
The work in Ditton Priors has already been completed, as has the work at Walton Cottages in Stottesdon.
The work in Condover and Stottesdon (Prescott to Miners Junction) is underway, with work at Bourton and Much Wenlock due to start shortly.
It’s on top of the £5 million of resurfacing and drainage work announced last week.
Steve Davenport, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for highways and transport, said:
“We’re committed to repairing, maintaining and improving our roads, and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to invest £1.3m on this essential work.
“As well as improving and protecting our road surfaces, this important programme of work plays a crucial role in helping to prevent potholes and other defects forming in the future. Pothole treatment is very much about prevention as well as cure and this is one important way that we can aim to prevent potholes forming in the future.”
