Pothole patrols

Shropshire Council has formed a new seven-year partnership to deliver a wide range of highways maintenance and environmental maintenance services. Its partners are engineering consultant WSP and Kier – the new highways maintenance contractor. Kier will be responsible for highways projects and schemes, pothole repair, gritting, bridge maintenance, grass cutting, drainage, street lighting, emergency responses, vehicle maintenance and more.
Shropshire Council has also welcomed the award of almost £1.86m from the Department for Transport to help repair potholes and protect the county’s roads from future severe weather.
Meanwhile, Telford and Wrekin’s Find it Fix it crews (pictured) will be out in force filling potholes over the coming months after the coldest winter for five years takes its toll on the borough’s roads. The number of potholes reported over the winter months spiked during the severe weather which lasted from December 2017 through to March this year. During this period, 2,983 potholes were reported, compared with 847 for the same period the year before.
To report potholes in Telford, visit telford.gov.uk/potholes or use the free Everyday Telford App. For potholes in Shropshire Council’s area, visit the Roads and Highways page at shropshire.gov.uk.
