Shropshire Council has just confirmed that 20,156 potholes have been tackled since 13 April 2021 – an average of more than 516 every week. As part of efforts to improve the county’s roads, crews from Shropshire Council and its contractor Kier are out across the county every day tackling potholes in a variety of ways.
Meanwhile, 49 stretches of road across Shropshire – measuring 143km – are being resurfaced between November 2021 and March 2022 as part of the council’s annual resurfacing programme – work that will help to prevent potholes forming in future. And 60 stretches of road across Shropshire were treated last year as part of Shropshire Council’s annual surface dressing programme. The work covered 816,000 square metres of road.
