50% more potholes this winter

Hertfordshire has seen a huge spike in the public reporting potholes this winter.

Over three and a half thousand (3634) reports were made by the public during January 2018 compared to less than two thousand (1841) for the same period in 2017. Herts County Council (HCC) says it continues to hit its targets of repairing the most urgent potholes within 24 hours and all others which are considered serious within five to 20 working days. 

So far this winter season HCC has made 66 gritting runs (compared to 44 for the whole of last season), with the winter season still going on until the end of April.

HCC are investing an additional £29m over the next four years to improve the condition of Hertfordshire’s unclassified road network.
