A NEW resurfacing scheme is promising to improve the condition of roads across Herefordshire. 

Potholes have appeared across the county after rain and freezing temperatures hit in recent months.

Hereford Times:

But Herefordshire Council said it is continuing to invest in the county’s infrastructure, with 21 road resurfacing schemes being completed this spring.

Working together with Balfour Beatty Living Places, the road resurfacing will help to improve and maintain the highway network for those living, working and travelling in Herefordshire, a Herefordshire Council spokesperson said.


"The improvements are focused on maintaining a safe and reliable road network in the most cost-effective way," the spokesperson said. 

"We use data on the condition of the roads and their expected remaining lifespan to make informed decisions on which roads to resurface and which to maintain through reactive repairs.

Hereford Times:

"Priority is given to roads that will benefit the most from resurfacing before they deteriorate and need larger, more costly repairs."
