£1.7 million for road repairs in Shropshire
LUDLOW and south Shropshire will receive money to help repair battered roads.
The Government has allocated £1.7 million to Shropshire to tackle pot holes and other problems.
It is Shropshire’s share, announced earlier this year, that the Government is making a further £183.5 million available to local highway authorities in England to help repair recent damage to the local road network.
“The wet winter weather and frequently varying temperatures over the winter months have taken their toll on road surfaces in Shropshire, so I am pleased the Government has made this money available to make necessary repairs,” said Phillip Dunne, MP for Ludlow.
“I am also encouraging Shropshire Council to bid for further funding from the additional £200 million set aside to protect and repair local roads, announced in the Chancellor’s budget speech.”
