Potters Bar’s MP has met with the borough council’s leader following a wave of complaints about the town’s roads.

Oliver Dowden told Cllr Morris Bright that the potholes issue around Hertsmere is “constantly raised” by residents.

The Hertsmere MP said: “Cllr Bright assured me the council are aware of how serious the issue is and explained that the bad weather over winter and spring have exacerbated the issue more than normal.

“He detailed though that the highways department is working constantly to repair them all as soon as possible and as your member of Parliament I will continue to monitor progress over the coming months.”

Cllr Bright, who is also deputy head of highways at the county council, said he will be meeting officers to see where work can be sped up.

He added the department was playing “catch-up”, but hoped residents are noticing the recent remedial work taking place.
