Some recently fixed speed bumps are to be changed again after drivers complained the new ones were “too high” and “damaging” vehicles.

The humps by Laurence Haines Primary School in Vicarage Road were re-done towards the end of the summer.

But Hertfordshire County Council soon began receiving complaints about the repair work.

Ejaz Kazmi, who lives locally, said: “Many of my customers were complaining about the speed bumps as well as myself and family and friends. They are very high and you can see many cars are being scratched underneath.

“We contacted our county councillor Nigel Bell to help us resolve this issue.”

Cllr Bell said: “Some residents contacted me saying this is terrible and I said to officers this needs to be looked at and a highways engineer came out.

“The council accepted there is an issue with two of the bumps - the measurements weren’t right.”

Repairs to the bumps are scheduled to take place tonight (November 30) by council contractor Ringway, with this stretch of Vicarage Road shut between 8pm and 5am.

Mr Kazmi, from Ejaz Gas and Electric services, said: “We are really pleased this is getting sorted. Hopefully this will be a big relief for people who live in the area.”

The council has been approached for further comment.
