Multevo Multihog machines are being used which plane off the road surface to enable a squared-off hole to be filled by a following gang.

Officials say it is quicker than having to saw-cut and break-out the defective road by hand – tackling potholes and other defects more quickly and effectively.

Shropshire Council has today revealed the roads which will be tackled in the county, using the three Multihog machines.

Dean Carroll, Shropshire Council’s cabinet member with responsibility for highways, said: “The Multihogs are a hugely important part of our work to tackle potholes and improve the county’s roads.

“It’s a really important part of our strategy to deliver meaningful repairs to roads across Shropshire, and make them safer for all road users.”

Since April 2021, more than 40,000 potholes have been repaired across the Shropshire Council area.
