Shropshire Council has recently been awarded a cool £1 million from the government’s Pothole Action Fund. Just maybe this has gone to the council’s head. One million pounds will pay for the elimination of 19,500 potholes from our county’s highways at fifty quid a time. Hurrah! But not at 3.30am in the morning. Last night, Shropshire Council arrived on the Galdeford corner, by the Co-op and the Queens, to start drilling out potholes and patching them. Local residents and visitors in holiday cottages were awakened by the noise. They were not happy.
