County Council diverts £11 million from road repairs

by stevejarvis on 4 August, 2020

The government has given Herts County Council an additional £11 million to spend on road repairs, but the council has decided to spend the money building new roads instead.

The money will be spent on widening the A602 between Stevenage and Ware, the Little Hadham by-pass and a new bridge in Hoddesdon.

This money should be used to improve uneven and unsafe footways, cut back overgrown paths and cycleways and improve maintenance on our streets. This was the government’s intention. The County council has millions in reserves that it could use to support any extra road building costs. As usual, the Conservatives have got their priorities wrong in the green agenda.
