Hertfordshire County Council has revealed how it plans to spend an extra £7.892m of local roads funding announced in the November Budget.

Added to the £5m already allocated within the county council’s budget for improving local roads, more roads can be resurfaced than previously planned. As a result, an extra 200 roads across Hertfordshire are set to benefit from resurfacing and maintenance work between now and the end of March.

Phil Bibby, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: ‘This extra funding means we can do more maintenance and resurfacing work over than the next few months than we had planned to do, which is great news for residents and road users. We’ll be resurfacing and patching an extra 200 roads on top of the ambitious maintenance and improvement programme we were already planning between now and March.’

Let’s hope that Berkhamsted and Tring feature in those 200 or so roads!
