NORTH East Herts MP Oliver Heald has been told by Hertfordshire Highways (HH) that a pathway that has disappeared due to cabling work will be replaced.

The path between Ivy Farm and Little Chef has gone due to the work by UK Power Networks, but after contacting HH Mr Heald was assured it would return improved.

“That stretch of footpath is much used by joggers and pedestrians so it is good news that it is to be improved as part of the cabling works,” he said.

“The area has been covered in soil and I can understand that some local residents thought it had disappeared forever, so I am glad that it is soon to be reinstated to a higher standard.”
