The two special vehicles that help tackle potholes on Shropshire’s roads recently ‘met’ the children who chose their new names. In a competition earlier this year, the county’s children were invited to suggest names for the two Roadmaster vehicles, and the winning suggestions were Fill.I.Am and Harry Pothole. The newly named vehicles met the pupils from Oxon Primary School in Shrewsbury and Footsteps Nursery in Oswestry.
Steve Davenport, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for highways and transport, says,
“Thank you again to all the children who suggested names for our Roadmasters, especially those who picked the winning names. I’m really pleased that Harry Pothole and Fill.I.Am are now out and about tackling potholes across the county.”
