Hertfordshire County Council named Transport County of the Year
Hertfordshire County Council was named Transport County of the Year at the National Transport Awards 2013.
The authority was recognised for its maintenance of the county’s 5,085km of roads, excluding motorways and trunk roads, and 5,375km of footpaths and cycleways.
Terry Douris, Cabinet Member for Highways and Waste Management said: "I am delighted that Hertfordshire County Council’s innovative work to promote and support sustainable travel to reduce growth in car traffic, improve the health and quality of life of residents and lower the negative impact on the environment has won us this wonderful accolade.
"We have built hugely successful partnerships with organisations across the county, from town and district council to public transport providers, schools, colleges and third sector groups to make our vision a reality."
