Motorist have something to smile about this week after councillors agreed to spend £40 million on improving the county's roads.

Hertfordshire’s 3,000 miles of roads will see £39.8m spent on them next year to keep them in top condition.

Members of the cabinet at County Hall agreed to the proposals at a meeting on Tuesday.

The work will involve planned maintenance to roads, bridges and pavements.

Money has also been set aside for reducing congestion and increasing pedestrian safety.

Councillor Terry Douris, cabinet member for highways, said: “We are committed to having a strong, resilient and successful economy supported by an efficient and reliable transport network and appropriate infrastructure. “Hertfordshire’s roads are very busy and we share our residents’ views that well-maintained roads and footpaths are very important.

“We need to make sure that the resources we have are used in the most efficient way.”
