County Conservatives Boost Highways Spend

The County Council have recently announced an extra £29 million investment in our local roads between now and 2022. This investment will have significant benefits for the roads of Hitchin and Harpenden.

Hitchin South County Councillor Derrick Ashley said, “I really welcome this additional funding for local roads, many of which have had no attention for years, as proof of the Conservative administration's commitment to maintaining the highway network. This has only been made possible by our local Conservative team who have carefully planned budgets well in advance and resisted siren calls from the opposition to spend beyond our means.”
