Shrewsbury Relief Road funds needed to repair pot holes

Money reserved for a planned £100m Shropshire relief road should be spent on repairing pot holes in the county instead, councillors have said.

Shropshire Council has about £1.5m from the government to spend on highways, some of which it planned to put towards a Shrewsbury Relief Road business plan.

The scheme has been put on hold pending a government spending review this year.

Councillors said on Thursday the funds should be used for the extensive road repair works after the harsh winter.
