AN updated and extended list of litter picks to be carried out alongside roads across Shropshire has been published.

Work is being carried out by Shropshire Council and its service provider Kier in the coming weeks, and is being undertaken due to the substantial amount of litter alongside these important stretches of road.

Some will be carried out during the day, and some will be done overnight.

Where work is taking place on dual carriageways, lane closures or diversions may be needed.

Some of the litter picks had been due to start in early March 2021 but the dates have now been revised.

The A49 between Ludlow and Clun will be done on Tuesday, April 6.

Other litter picks with provisional dates at the time of going to press are: B4368 High St End Clun-Craven Arms Road , on Thursday, April 3 and White Gates Aston on Clun, continuing through to Clun Road and down to Craven Arms, scheduled for Wednesday, April 14. All are weather dependent.
