Herefordshire tops roadworks league in the past two years!


Recommended Posts

Herefordshire tops the national city league with 105,614 roadworks in the last two years. 

The west English county of Herefordshire has seen the most road and street works undertaken in the past two years by the council and utilities. With over 100,00 it is the only council area of any type in the country with a six-figure number of roadwork projects. Furthermore, it is almost 90,000 more than the national average for the same period.

On average it is estimated that UK motorists lose 28 hours a year due to being stuck in traffic caused by roadworks, and almost everyone in the country has been impacted by them at some point.

Even small works in the UK can feel like they take an eternity compared to other countries.

For example, in 2016 a major road in the Japanese city of Fukuoka was completely destroyed by a massive 15-meter deep sinkhole, this was completely repaired and reopened in six days.
