WORN-OUT: Residents complain that neglected roads have become a hazard

 Published on: 11th October 2022   |   By: Darius Morgan   |   Category: Uncategorized

Garston residents are claiming the poor condition of on-street 40mph roundels has become a highway hazard.

The worn-out roundels are located on the A405 between the Garston long-about and its junction with St Albans Road.

Garston county councillor Tim Williams has received many pleas from residents desperate for urgent repairs to be made. The roundel near Aurora Close is said to be of such a depth that it jolts the vehicles passing over it, with drivers often dangerously swerving to avoid it. 

Cllr Williams confronted Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) about this issue.

Cllr Williams stated: “It’s disappointing. These worn-out roundels are so deteriorated that they are now hazards in their own right.

“The vehicles going over them are creating such a racket that nearby residents are now complaining about the lack of sleep.”

A spokesperson for HCC said: “A missing or faded road marking of this nature would not be considered an immediate hazard under our highways maintenance assessment, but would be considered for works as part of any planned carriageway maintenance at this location. If it is the road itself that has broken up, we would encourage residents to report this at bit.ly/3eeP55D”

If it is the road itself that has broken up, creating a pothole, we would encourage residents to report this online.”
