A section of road containing potholes could be repaired ahead of schedule.
Two district councillors told the Comet last week that potholes in Bedford Road, Letchworth GC, could take more than a year for Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) to repair as part of a wider scheme.
But a spokesman for HCC has now said that Eurovia, a framework contractor which carries out scheduled maintenance work for HCC’s main contractor Ringway, will be repairing the damage in “March or April”.
The section of damage is at the Bursland end of Bedford Road, near the roundabout for Valley Road.
Regarding HCC’s policy on potholes, Terry Douris, cabinet member for highways, said: “In Hertfordshire we are continuing to invest heavily in our roads and spend millions every year on pothole repairs. In Hertfordshire we have long championed a proactive approach to maintaining our roads that focuses on prevention rather than cure.

“Our highways contractor, Ringway, continues to make repairs on our behalf. When you spot a pothole, please report it to us on www.hertsdirect.org/highwayfaults or 0300 123 4047.”
