Highways repair programme is on the road...
(20th April 2012)
A £3.2m maintenance programme on 115 roads in the county starts on Monday 23 April 2012 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.
Full details of the Integrated Works Programme is available at: www.hertsdirect.org/services/transtreets/highways/iwp.doc.
Details of the specific roadworks are available at www.hertsdirect.org/roadworks.
A full list of work, both for 2012/13 and proposed work for 2013 to 2017, is also available broken down by district on: www.hertsdirect.org/mm/15520666/15744560/cabinetitem6appb20120319.pdf.
Rob Smith, Assistant Director of Transport Management said: "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."
The works are weather dependent and from time to time unforeseen circumstances can arise. Any changes to the proposed start date, duration or working hours will be announced on the information boards on site and will be available at www.hertsdirect.org/roadworks.
