In 2019, Havering Council launched a £40 million highways investment programme to make it easier and smoother for residents to get around the borough. Marlborough have been working in partnership with Havering Council to carry out these works.
Our experienced team have improved and repaired over 35 miles of roads and 25 miles of pavements since the campaign was announced.
Councillor Osman Dervish, Havering’s Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “Residents told us they were concerned about the quality of roads and pavements. We listened and the investment has seen a huge improvement across the borough. There is still work to do but the programme is continuing to provide residents with better roads and pavements. With the easing of lockdown restrictions continuing and there are more people out in the borough making journeys. We hope that everyone enjoys the improvements they see on our roads and pavements.”
The improvement works were allowed to continue under government guidelines throughout the Covid-19 pandemic to ensure frontline NHS and other key workers could get around the borough safely.
Roger Cricks, Contract Director at Marlborough Highways, said: “We’re delighted with the improvements made within Havering so far. Marlborough has a great relationship with Havering Council. We work in partnership with them on their Highways Investment programme providing both road resurfacing works and pavement maintenance schemes. We’ve dedicated a lot of resources to ensure we can meet the ongoing demands of Havering Council for the benefit of residents.”
