The poor state of many of Hatfield’s residential roads has been caused by cold and wet winter weather, according to County Hall.
Contractors had to return to Birchwood Avenue because repairs requested by Councillor Maureen cook didn’t last long, and several other roads have provoked recent complaints.
A county council spokesman responded: “Carriageway patching work for Birchwood Avenue, Hatfield, was recommended by the local county councillor and was funded from the Highways Locality Budget. However, over the winter the road surface deteriorated further which resulted in an extra 40 per cent more area being patched.
“Since late January other areas have showed signs of failure, so we recognise there is still more work to be done.”
