Report a highways fault or concern

With over 5,000 kilometres of roads, cycleways, footpaths and verges in Shropshire, it isn't possible for us to inspect all of the network all of the time. You can help us by reporting any maintenance problems you see using our online service.

It's important to provide accurate details of the problem, including:

  • What the problem is
  • Where it is located
  • When you noticed the problem
  • Your name and contact details 


For highway defects within the Telford and Wrekin area only telephone 01952 384000 or visit their website.

The following roads in Shropshire are maintained by National Highways. For general enquiries, contact their office on 0300 123 5000 or email

  • M54 whole length
  • A5 Preston Island (junction with A49 north of Shrewsbury) to county boundary Chirk
  • A5 Shrewsbury to Telford
  • A49 south of Shrewsbury by-pass
  • A483 south of A5 Roundabout Oswestry Mile End to Llanymynech

You can also view maps showing the roads maintained by National Highways on their website.

Office opening hours

  • Monday to Thursday 8am to 5pm
  • Friday 8am to 4pm

What happens next?

All reports will be responded to within seven to ten working days. For urgent problems we aim to visit the site within 24 hours. For non-urgent problems it may be more cost effective for the inspection to be delayed until a member of the local highway maintenance staff is near the area.

Emergency problems

If the problem is urgent, please telephone 0345 678 9006 (Highways Customer Services).

Problems notified to us online over the weekend will not normally be read until Monday morning.
