Dear Brian Ellis

 

Reference number: EIR/ENV/06/19/17643

 

On 17^th June 2019 Hertfordshire County Council received the following
request for information from you:

 

Resurfacing and Road Markings

 

Recently the stretch of road on London Road (from Common Road towards St
Peter's Church) was resurfaced. 

 

A significant stretch of road has not been painted by the contractor.

 

1) Did Hertfordshire Council request that this stretch of road not be
painted?

2) Was the contractor expected to paint this stretch of road?

3) Has the contractor been paid for painting this stretch of road even
though it has not been painted?

4) Have there been any accidents on this stretch of road since the
resurfacing due to the lack of road markings?

5) Are there any plans to get this stretch of road painted?  If so, will
there be a further cost to the council?

 

Your request for information has been considered under the Environmental
Information Regulations 2004. I can confirm that Hertfordshire County
Council does hold the information you have requested. Our response is as
follows.

 

1) Did Hertfordshire Council request that this stretch of road not be
painted?

All road marking were to be re-instated “like for like” after the recent
carriageway resurfacing works as per HCC’s Design and Maintenance
pre-scheme information submitted to the contractor.

 

2) Was the contractor expected to paint this stretch of road?

The contractor was expected to re-instate all road markings (as per
previous answer above). To confirm there was a delay in all markings being
painted due to parked cars within the site extent, hence the additional
visits to have all markings completed.

 

3) Has the contractor been paid for painting this stretch of road even
though it has not been painted?

No. The contractors payment will be held until all works are complete as
per the scheme information provided to them.

 

4) Have there been any accidents on this stretch of road since the
resurfacing due to the lack of road markings?

No. Not that we are aware of at this time.

 

5) Are there any plans to get this stretch of road painted?  If so, will
there be a further cost to the council?

The road markings have since been re-instated, the marking was finally
completed Thursday 4^th July and the re-visit(s) are at of no cost to HCC.
