Long term (major) roadwork projects are large schemes of work to improve roads, pavements or traffic flow in Hertfordshire.
They often take 5 to 10 years to finish.
Costs are usually high so we write a business case to get funding from other organisations. This also shows that the planned improvements are worth the money.
We put together the different options available to make the improvements.
The public and other interested people can look at the different options to make the road improvements. This is your chance to tell us what you think. We can then establish a preferred option.
Once we know the agreed option, we write a business case which sets out:
- what work is required
- how much it will cost
- the benefits of doing the work.
We then seek funding from other organisations such as the Department for Transport.
When we have the funding for the work, we put together a planning application. We also create a more detailed technical design and we identify a contractor to carry out the work.
At this stage we arrange public meetings in the towns and villages near to where the work will take place. This is to update residents on current progress and to answer questions.
The actual work starts. Progress updates, delays and diversion routes will all be explained here.
