Highways programme approved

£40 million worth of highways schemes have been given the go ahead by Hertfordshire County Council.

During 2018/19 nearly £40 million will be spent delivering over 1,000 maintenance and improvement schemes across Hertfordshire’s 3,000 miles of road. 

Planned work schedules include repairs and maintenance to roads, traffic signals, bridges and pavements, and improvements such as tackling safety problems, reducing traffic congestion and assisting pedestrians.

This year’s funding includes an extra £5m which the county council is spending on improving the condition of local roads people live and work on, as part of a longer term £29m programme targeted on those smaller, local roads.
