£1m Pot Hole Fixing Programme For Hertfordshire

Drivers across Hertfordshire should have fewer potholes to dodge thanks to a £1m investment in road-repairs specifically targeting pot-holes.

Hertfordshire County Council has received extra funding of £943,000 from the Department of Transport's Pothole Action Fund

Over the next few months, around 16,000 square metres of road throughout the county will be resurfaced - the equivalent of more than two rugby pitches.

Terry Douris, Hertfordshire County Council's Cabinet Member for Highways, said:

"Hertfordshire's 3,000 miles of roads are among the busiest in the country, with over five billion vehicle miles travelled every year and this inevitably results in wear and tear leading to potholes and defects. This year we have spent more than £30m on road maintenance and repairs.

We have taken time in planning to ensure that this money is used as effectively as possible to improve the condition of our roads."

The works began this month in Tring and will be carried out throughout the county over the next few months.

Resurfacing works are scheduled as follows:

October
Tring, Hemel Hempstead, Abbots Langley, Berkhamsted, Sarratt, Watford, Dacorum, South Oxhey, Bushey, Flaunden, Rickmansworth, Borehamwood, Bricket Wood, St Albans, Croxley Green, Radlett, Redbourn, Colney Heath and Hatfield

November
Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield, Hitchin, Letchworth, Northaw, St Albans, Marshalswick, Harpenden, Stevenage, Cuffley, London Colney, Hatfield, Kelshall and Potters Bar

December
Welwyn Garden City, Stevenage, Codicote, Hitchin, Welham Green and Harpenden

January
Barley, Royston and Baldock

The funding has been made available as part of the Government's £250m Pothole Action Fund which will fix over four million potholes by 2020/21
