TOP PRIORITY: Survey shows Bushey residents’ concerns over state of some roads 

 Published on: 8th December 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Uncategorized

Eight out of ten Bushey residents say road repairs are the community’s top local priority – and more than two-thirds say footpaths and pavements need urgent attention.

That’s according to a survey by Bushey’s Liberal Democrat borough councillors, who are now leading a drive to identify and repair faults on highways and walkways.

Residents reported dozens of specific problems, including large potholes, degraded road surfaces, and eroded footpaths.

Bushey Lib Dem campaigner Laurence Brass said: “Potholes and broken paving sound like mundane issues, but in reality, they pose daily inconvenience and danger to motorists, cyclists and pedestrians – including the elderly, disabled, and parents with buggies.

“It’s clear from our survey that Bushey residents are getting pretty fed up, because many faults are either fixed too slowly or just plain ignored.”

“We’re calling on Hertfordshire County Council – who maintain our roads and pavements – to ensure Bushey gets its fair share of the repairs budget. We’re also reporting every fault we discover to the highways team, but all residents can help by flagging up local issues via the Herts CC website, and letting us know at

The survey also found that both public and greener transport are important to Bushey residents. 25 per cent want to see bus services improved, while 20 per cent are calling for more extensive cycle lanes.
