£3m for 115 Herts Roads
6:02am 23rd April 2012
A £3.2m maintenance programme on 115 roads in Hertfordshire starts today and will run for approximately five weeks.
The surface dressing work which covers a total of 800,000 square metres of Hertfordshire roads is just part of the larger Highway Integrated Works Programme for 2012/13. This programme covers the full range of maintenance and improvement schemes that Hertfordshire Highways undertake each year, not just on roads but also on pavements, streetlights, bridges and many other aspects of highways maintenance.
Details of the specific roadworks are available HERE
Rob Smith, Assistant Director of Transport Management told Mix96: "Surface dressing is a cost effective maintenance treatment that reduces the cost of road maintenance to the taxpayer. Drivers are asked to take care when driving through recently dressed sites and observe the warning and speed restriction signs."
