Radlett: road verge upgrade
The site: Smug Oak Lane leading from Watling Street to Bricket Wood, near Radlett.
The brief: The construction of a new bridleway along the road verge, part of the Hertfordshire Rights of Way Improvement Plan. The plan provides the context for the future management of, and investment in, the rights of way network and other access activities, to meet the needs and demands of the people of Hertfordshire and those visiting the county.
Our solution: The contractors at Maydencroft cleared the verge, relocated the ditch, levelled the ground and constructed a new bridleway near popular riding stables.
The result: A new, safe and usable bridleway along the road verge and a successful joint venture between Hertfordshire County Council's Highways Department and Environment Department.
