Response from Hertfordshire Highways

On the 13th April, the Residents Association submitted a paper to the Hertfordshire Highways Joint Member Panel regarding our perceived priorities for the local roads in and around Chorleywood. We have been tirelessly reporting faults to the Highways Team, especially since bad weather earlier this year opened up a number of extra defects on our local roads. The Residents' Association has logged over 350 faults in the past few months using the HertsDirect Online Fault Reporting Tool.

The officer responsible for the local highways team has responded to the Residents' Association with the following feedback:
(as of end April 2010)

Highway Repairs:
  • Blacketts Wood Drive - this site will be considered for an annual joint sealing programme to be carried out in the Autumn
  • Chalfont Lane - Local patching programme to be carried out within the next two months
  • Common Road - areas have been made safe, permanent patching and drainage works to be arranged under a road closure, during the school summer holidays
  • Dog Kennel Lane - as above, road closure during the summer holidays, local patching
  • Green Street - included in this years surface dressing programme, junction with Station Approach to be carried out local  patching in conjunction with Station Approach, under a road closure.
  • Heronsgate Road - identified as part of the winter recovery programme to be re-surfaced during the summer.
  • Hillside Road - Local patching programme in the summer
  • Long Lane - Included in this year's IWP, additional jet patching to be carried out prior to surface dressing in the summer.

  • Dog Kennel Lane - further investigations - possible break in main pipe run.
  • Common Road - as above
  • Long Lane - added to vactor list for total clean within the next two months.
We've asked to be kept informed of progress as a result of the above schedule. And also if we're able to be informed of any road closures before they happen and get the word out to the local community, we'll try to do so (depending on Herts Highways letting us know). If we do get any road closure updates, we'll be Tweeting them on Twitter!
