Marlborough Highways has been awarded a four-year Contract with the London Borough of Havering to help make resident’s journeys around the borough better and safer. Havering Council’s new Highways Investment campaign worth £40m will fix potholes, resurface and repave the borough’s worst roads and pavements.
The leader of Havering Council, Councillor Damian White, officially launched the new programme of works at an event in The Mount, Noak Hill Road, Romford, yesterday (20 May 2019) along with Marlborough’s Managing Director, Matthew Revell.
The leader of the Council, Councillor Damian White, said: “ “We are extremely pleased to be investing £40m in our roads and pavements. Residents told us they were worried about the quality of roads and pavements, we listened and we are acting upon those concerns. We are investing in a programme of works where residents will be able to enjoy the results, making it easier and smoother for them to get around the borough, see the pavements outside of their homes looking smart and safe to walk on and making them prouder of where they live. Also, as part of the works programme, we will fix potholes, which we know is another concern for residents. We undertake repairs of around 1,000 potholes per year. We want to encourage residents to report these to us. Fixing the borough’s roads and pavements is a top priority to residents and it is a top priority for us as a Council. This investment will help us achieve a Cleaner, Safer, Prouder Havering, Together.”
During the four-year Contract, Marlborough Highways will help support the Havering community through local employment, apprenticeships, local suppliers as well as supporting community events.
