A councillor says he has been told drivers will have to wait for a nearby project to end before "one of the worst roads in the county" can be resurfaced.

Central Watford county councillor Stephen Giles-Medhurst says he has been pressing for work in Woodford Road, near Watford Junction.

He said: "We have been pressing the county council to resurface Woodford Road for years. Works were planned in 2017, then 2018 and now in this year. It's one of the worst roads in the county and is dangerous for cyclists."

Cllr Giles-Medhurst says the county council will not give any dates for when the resurfacing will take place until work in nearby Clarendon Road has been completed - which he says is "not good enough".

In a bid to hurry the work along, Cllr Giles-Medhurst was joined by borough councillors for Central Watford, Cllrs Steve Bolton, Rabi Martins, and Aga Dychton, who held up 'Repair this road' placards.

Cllr Phil Bibby, cabinet member for highways at Hertfordshire County Council, said: "The proposed surfacing for St Johns Road, Woodford Road and Orphanage Road is scheduled to be delivered this financial year, and this has always been our commitment.

"These schemes will require at least six night shifts to complete, with a full road closure and diversion route.

"However, the town centre is very busy with other programmed works in the area, so discussions between engineers and our network management team have been ongoing as to when we can complete the works, avoiding undue disruption and overlapping."

Some of the work currently ongoing in the area is footway work in Clarendon Road and St John's Road being used as a storage area.
