Repairs to A442 and Randlay Avenue

Telford & Wrekin Council have been in touch with me today about the A442 Eastern Primary and the Town Park car park off Randlay Avenue.

I reported the large holes appearing in the road around Stirchley Interchange a week or so ago, some of which are potholes that have been repaired more than once in the last year or two.  Unfortunately, the council don't keep records of when they have to pay TWS to repair the same potholes over and over again so I imagine they'll have to pay for the repairs again.

The council have inspected the road and decided that the holes are dangerous so as soon as they've got the legal stuff in place they'll close the carriageway overnight for repairs.  The holes on the island won't be done at the same time because they're not considered to be dangerous.

I also reported the shocking state of the entrance to the Town Park car park off Randlay Avenue where the surface has worn away behind the kerb stones in the entrance, leaving quite large holes that could easily damage cars and as the car park is used as an overspill for the International Centre, it hardly gives a good impression of the town.  Engineers will be visiting the site in the next few days to see what can be done about it.

Randlay Avenue itself is also going to have repairs carried out by the end of March.  I was told in December that there was no reason for concern and repairs wouldn't be carried out but I persevered and the damage to the road around Boulton Grange will be repaired.
