The sites have been identified via a combination of local engineering judgement and asset management data as being in need of resurfacing.

The sites form part of a countywide programme of schemes, which the council says are scheduled to deliver the work in the most efficient and cost-effective way.

A council spokesman said that to ensure value for money, roads that are likely to need costly repairs in the future are prioritised.

Dates and details for each scheme will be added to the interactive map at once known. The map can be searched using the reference number for each site in the list below.

Councillor Richard Marshall, Shropshire Council’s cabinet member for highways, said: “We’re committed to improving our roads and making them safer for all road users.

"Our annual resurfacing programme is an important part of this and represents a significant investment in the county’s roads.

"It will greatly improve stretches of roads across Shropshire and help to prevent potholes and other problems occurring in the future.

“I’m sure the work will be welcomed by people who use these stretches of road and I thank people for their patience and understanding while this important work is carried out.”

Meanwhile, more than 60 stretches of road across Shropshire are set to be treated this spring and summer as part of Shropshire Council’s annual surface dressing programme.

Some dates may change, depending on operational considerations and weather conditions.
