Watford’s roads made spic and span by ‘deep cleans’ from council and its partners

Watford Borough Council and its partners have worked together to give 24 of the town’s roads a ‘deep clean’, ensuring they are thoroughly spic and span.

The operation was launched to target roads that would usually be difficult to clean due to obstructions such as the amount of cars parked on them. Watford Borough Council, its partner Veolia, Hertfordshire County Council, highways contractor Ringway, and Murrill Construction worked together to repaint road lines, repair or replace street name plates, empty gullies, power-wash pavements and street surfaces, trim hedges and more.

Hertfordshire County Councillor for Central Watford and Oxhey Stephen Giles-Medhurst and Watford Borough and County Councillor for Vicarage and Holywell Nigel Bell provided additional funding for their wards, further boosting the improvements programme. The ‘deep cleans’ took place over the last three weeks in Watford’s Central, Tudor, Vicarage and Woodside wards.

Deputy Mayor and Portfolio Holder for Client Services, Cllr Peter Taylor, said: "Keeping Watford's streets clean and tidy is a priority for the council. We work closely with Veolia to make sure that every street is cleaned regularly. The 'deep clean' makes sure that some streets get a bit of extra attention and I'm pleased that this has gone so well."
