The Highways Service helps make Hertfordshire the County of Opportunity by Moving Hertfordshire Forward. The service does this by delivering safe, reliable journeys, sustainably, whilst balancing the needs of the asset, network operation and customers using the resources available.
Asset Management continues to be at the heart of government thinking for the delivery of efficiencies within local and national highway services. The DfT incentive element of highway maintenance funding is now well established and last year Hertfordshire maintained the top ‘Level 3’, securing the full funding available.
New initiatives such as the Major Road Network and AM Guidance for Footways and Cycle routes provide further opportunities and encouragement to continue to apply and embed asset management concepts throughout the service in a seamless way.
The Hertfordshire County Council highways service continues to be well placed to benefit from its strong position in the field of highway asset management by incorporating further improvements and efficiencies into the service as it develops over the next few years.
