ROAD SAFETY: Radlett resident calls for improvements to be made along village roads

 Published on: 18th January 2022   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

A resident is calling for the council to make improvements to roads in the village, which they say are causing problems for pedestrians and drivers.

They are calling on the council to implement a speed camera on Cobden Hill to stop drivers travelling at high speeds along the road, and make improvements to the pathway along Waitling Street to make it easier for walkers to navigate.

Radlett Resident Lazar Friedlander explained: “I walk along the road [Walting Street] towards Elstree on Saturdays and the pathway in many places is muddy and slippery in winter and overgrown in summer. There are also many holes and uneven surfaces along the whole way which means sometimes I have to walk along the road. 

“I think a camera should also be put on Cobden Hill, as it’s hard to pull out safely due to the speed some people travel along the road.”

A council spokesperson said: “Road safety is of paramount importance to Hertfordshire County Council and we are happy to hear suggestions from residents about improvements that can be made to roads in their area. The county council prioritises funding for highway safety to schemes which have the greatest potential to reduce the number and severity of collisions occurring and this location is not currently classed as a hazardous site. 

“Residents can however approach their local county councillor who may be able to fund approved highways safety measures through the Highways Locality Budget Scheme.”
