Herefordshire Council say that 133,000 square metres of C and U roads in the county have been improved as part of the Department for Transport’s £2.558m additional investment for highways.

Coun Barry Durkin, cabinet member for roads and regulatory services, said patching repairs, followed by surface dressing of the selected roads, at an appropriate time in the life cycle of the road, is considered the most cost-effective use of the funding.
