Conservative County Council Refuses to Fix Potholes Quicker
Originally published by Hertfordshire Liberal Democrats
At present the County Council will take up to a month to fix reported holes on most roads other than main routes.
On Monday the Conservative run County Council rejected a Liberal Democrat bid to half the amount of time it takes to fix faults. The Liberal Democrats want potholes fixed in 10 working days. Liberal Democrat Group Leader Cllr Stephen Giles-Medhurst who proposed the move said:
Back in 2015 the potholes would have been fixed if they were 40mm deep and wide but the Conservatives changed this to 50mm and delayed the timescale for fixing them to a month. Yet our roads are just as bad as ever.
