A Councillor has lodged a strong complaint to Shropshire Council after their contractors set up traffic lights on the near Stockton on the Welsh border only to disappear and do no further work!

HeatherHeather Kidd, Shropshire Councillor for the area, said: "Traffic lights were put in a month ago as large pothole and edge of road deemed unsafe. The work was deemed urgent. Since then nothing has been done to put this right.

"The lights often going wrong (once because the batteries had run out) and cones blown all over the place. One major pothole wasn't cordoned off in the first place.

"This is a busy road and no we are told we will have nothing done until December and then they want to close the road.

"The big problem is that this is not one isolated incident but has happened repeatedly across the County. I have been pushing the Council for years to manage this contract more effectively and I sincerely hope that it's the contractor (Kier) and not the taxpayer who is footing the bill for this delay."
