Hertfordshire County Council highways locality budget has set aside £90,000 for projects in both Welwyn Hatfield and Hertsmere, in addition to the millions invested each year through various highway maintenance and improvement schemes.

Councillor Terry Douris, cabinet member for highways, said: “The highways locality budget scheme is allowing people in the Welwyn Hatfield area to influence important decisions on highways work.

“Residents who use local routes on a daily basis have a good knowledge of what problems need fixing and I hope people will get in touch with their county councillor and have their say on where funding is spent.”

Previous projects during 2013/14 include repairs and resurfacing of roads and pavements, reduction of vegetation on verges and grass cutting.
