If you have traveled anywhere recently you will have noticed the roads are appalling. They are riddled with potholes and have been for months. I have been communicating with lots of people who are reporting potholes and almost every conversation I have locally is about potholes.

I’m sure we can all understand the weather has been exceptionally bad this year, resulting in the worst roads I have ever seen. On top of the huge budget cuts I can understand the pressure highways will be under. However we all pay our taxes and should be able to drive on safe roads.

For some time, I have been trying to find out why our local reports have gone in answered and when the area is scheduled for repairs. I have finally heard back with some definitive times.

They were in the area yesterday and today and tell me they will be carrying out emergency repairs within 24 hours

If, in the next 48 hours you are still seeing dangerous potholes, please tell me and report to the council. If you need to report potholes please do so via this link https://shropshire.gov.uk/roads-and-highways/report-a-fault-or-concern/ or leave a comment below.

Keep in touch
