Heathgates island after it was resurfaced

Heathgates roundabout in Shrewsbury was resurfaced in early 2022

A further 43 stretches of road in Shropshire are set to be resurfaced in the 2022/23 financial year, as Shropshire Council and its partners Kier and WSP continue their programme of work to improve the county’s roads.

The roads include 13 in the central area of the county, 18 in the north, and 12 in the south. The work follows the resurfacing of almost 50 stretches of road between November 2021 and April 2022.

The sites have been identified via a combination of local engineering judgment and asset management data as being in need of resurfacing. The sites form part of a countywide programme of schemes, scheduled to deliver the work in the most efficient and cost-effective way.

To ensure value for money, roads that are likely to need costly repairs in the future are prioritised.

Dates for the work will be added to this interactive map once known. The map can be searched using the reference number for each site in the list below.

Dean Carroll, Cabinet member for highways, said:

“We’re committed to improving our roads and making them safer for all road users. Our annual resurfacing programme is an important part of this and represents a significant investment in the county’s roads. It will greatly improve stretches of roads across Shropshire and help to prevent potholes and other problems occurring in the future.

“I’m sure the work will be welcomed by people who use these stretches of road and I thank people for their patience and understanding while this important work is carried out.”

Meanwhile, more than 90 stretches of road across Shropshire are set to be treated this spring and summer as part of Shropshire Council’s annual surface dressing programme.

Some dates may change, depending on operational considerations and weather conditions.
