Our Local Roads Maintenance team, based at Hertfordshire County Council has, in a 3 month period, resurfaced 150 miles of its highways (5% of its network).

An asset management approach, to ensure a quality surface for motorists and pedestrians over the next decade, is achieved by using systems such as GIS and a local inspection team to identify hotspots. Delivering an annual £30m programme, the team source the treatments which will provide the biggest impact, whilst balancing cost and quality. Alternative options considered by the team have included trialing some older treatment practices, combining them with some newer ideas.
