Councillors demand action over ‘worst’ road in Watford

 Published on: 6th August 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

Liberal Democrat councillors for Central Watford have hit out over delays in fully resurfacing a major road in Watford Town Centre.

They claim Woodford Road is one of the worse roads in the county with a “switch back” surface and is dangerous for cyclists.

Woodford Road is also a main access to Watford Junction Station.

Cllr Stephen Giles-Medhurst, for Central Watford and Oxhey, said: “We have been pressing the county council to resurface Woodford Road for years.

“Works were planned in 2017, then 2018 and now in this year. Despite promises made to me that this road and the lower section of St Johns Road and the junction with Orphanage Road would be done this financial year the county council has still refused to give me any dates for the works saying they will not agree dates until works in Clarenden Road are finished. This is not good enough.

“Resurfacing during August (with less traffic) and at night would be best. It now seems very likely that the badly needed works will slip yet again.

“With the Tory county council taking 77 per cent of our council tax they should keep to their promises and fix our roads. Frankly it’s so uneven and potholed its dangerous.”
