Shropshire residents are being asked to help with work to improve Shropshire’s roads, by volunteering to take part in some research.

Shropshire Council and its contractors are working hard to improve the county’s highways and make them safer for all road users. As part of this work volunteers are being sought to suggest and talk about changes they would like to see made to the council’s highways service, and the ways the county’s roads and pavements are maintained.

Steve Charmley, Cabinet member for highways, said:

“We’re working to improve Shropshire’s roads and we want to make sure that those improvements are ones that will make a positive difference to all road users. To do this, we’re looking for some volunteers willing to take part in some research and talk to us about the changes you would like to see.

“Most people use our roads, and most people have an opinion about them. We want people to share their experiences, and share their thoughts about how we could further improve our roads, and our highways maintenance service.

“If you would like to volunteer, please let us know. All comments made and views shared will be considered and we look forward to hearing what people have to say.”

Anyone interested in taking part, or finding out more, is asked to register their name and contact details here.
