Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, has successfully lobbied to include Shop Lane on the capital programme for local road maintenance.
Following concerns expressed by residents, Gavin visited the road in question and agreed with residents about the safety risk posed by the high number of road defects.
While an officer from Highways Department had already marked off some of the road defects, many remain, posing a continued hazard to pedestrians and commuters, and particularly those who are elderly or partially sighted.
The South Staffordshire MP reached out to the Brewood Councillor, Mark Sutton, and together they were successful in having Shop Lane added to the Capital Programme for Total Resurfacing, under which the road defects and potholes on the road will be repaired.
Cllr Mark Sutton said “I have raised this matter with the County Highways teams directly who can confirm, following an assessment by engineers, that Shop Lane does feature on the forward program of Structural works.”
Gavin Williamson said “Having received concerns from my constituents over hazardous potholes in Shop Lane, I have taken the matter up with the Highways Department at Staffordshire County Council. Shop Lane has now been included in the capital programme for total resurfacing, and I will continue to lobby on behalf of residents so that funds become available as soon as possible.”
