We've received the following information from a local resident regarding the worsening potholes near the primary school in Adderley:

Further to your recent enquiry regarding the road surface at A529 Adderley. Shropshire Council are aware of the current condition of the A529 outside Adderley School and have programmed resurfacing of the area.

The road is inspected regularly and any further safety defects that occur, will be repaired as and when necessary, until the resurfacing work has been undertaken."
