MORE than £36 million worth of repairs have been planned for Hertfordshire’s roads.

The works, to be carried out over the next two years, were agreed at a Herts County Council cabinet meeting.

Details of the repair and improvement works to be carried out on roads across Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted, Tring and the rest of Dacorum, have been laid out in a public document.

Council highways chief Stuart Pile said: “We appreciate how important road maintenance is to Hertfordshire’s residents.

“The challenge to keep improving the condition of our roads is complex, not least because of the scale of the task.

“We have over 3,000 miles of roads and a similar length of pavements to maintain.

“Hertfordshire’s roads are also much busier than the national average, making work on them more difficult and speeding up the rate at which they naturally deteriorate.”
