The Highway Rangers are coming to Shotesham soon.
If you have any work you would like added to the list (see typical items below) please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org Note: Please could all items of an enquiry type or requiring substantial works be sent separately for the attention of the area highway engineer. Please can you send your requests to us before 22 May 2019.
To help identify them from other enquiries it would be helpful if you can place “RANGER DEFECTS” and your PARISH in the subject field and provide as much information as possible about the exact location and specific concern.
