Herefordshire A-roads resurfacing work planned

Herefordshire Council has embarked on its largest ever programme of annual road maintenance.

The harsh winter left roads badly damaged and the council said it would cost £5.5m to repair all the potholes.

It has contracted public service provider Amey to resurface more than 110 miles (180km) of the county's roads this year.

The council said work on A-roads would be carried out first.

Resurfacing work has been carried out on the A438 Hereford to Kington road and is due to start in Avenbury, Ewyas Harold, Hereford, Hereford city centre and Marstow within the next few weeks.

Brian Wilcox, Herefordshire Council's cabinet member for highways and transportation, said: "I would ask motorists to bear with us while these essential works are carried out and to look out for signs giving advance notice of works to be undertaken."
