Dear Mr Ellis

 

Reference number: EIR/ENV/03/19/17194

 

Thank you for your correspondence, received by Hertfordshire County
Council on 19^th March 2019, requesting the following information:

 

There have been several large potholes that have been recently repaired on
London Road in Bushey.  These repairs are already coming apart, so can you
please confirm:

 

- how much it cost to fill these potholes?

- what is the expected life of the repair?

- whether compensation is being sought from the contractor for the poor
quality repair?

 

Further to our acknowledgement of your request for information, I have
been asked to contact you for some further clarification on your request. 

 

It is quite difficult to identify the cost of pothole repairs as they are
unlikely to be costed individually. On the whole costs are likely to be
based on the total cost of all types of road maintenance.  It is possible
that particularly large potholes may be costed separately

 

If you can identify a particular section of London Road where you have
noticed potholes and provide more information about the period of time you
are looking at, we may be able to provide further information.

 

As soon as we receive this clarification we will be in a position to
continue processing your request. If we do not receive a response to this
request for clarification, within 90 days of the date that this
correspondence was sent then we will close this request and any further
correspondence would be considered as a new request.

 

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to
contact me, quoting the reference number on this correspondence.

 

Yours sincerely
