Hertfordshire County Council intends to make an Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, to prohibit all traffic from using the following lengths of roads (“the Roads”), except for access and to prohibit all vehicles from waiting at any time on both sides of these lengths of Roads whilst works are in progress:1

  1. that length of B1000 Hertford Road, Tewin from its junction with Herns Lane north westwards to its junction with B1000 Waterside, a distance of approximately 1028 metres. An alternative route will be via Herns Lane, B195 Black Fan Road and A1000 (Mundells/ Bessemer Road).
  2. that length of Hertford Road, Digswell/Tewin from its junction with the A1000 Bessemer Road/A1000 Hertford Road roundabout south eastwards to its junction with B1000 Waterside, a distance of approximately 2006 metres. An alternative route will be via A1000 (Bessemer Road/Mundells), B195 Black Fan Road and Herns Lane.
  3. that length of Cucumber Lane, Essendon from its junction with B158 High Road south eastwards to its junction with Tylers Causeway, a distance of approximately 2128 metres. An alternative route will be via B158 (Cum Cum Hill/Kentish Lane) and Woodfield Lane.

The Order is needed because works are proposed to be executed on or near the Roads.

If the Order is made, it shall come into force on 11 February 2019 for a period of up to 18 months. However, the restrictions specified shall only take effect at the times indicated by signs on or near the Roads.

A copy of the proposed Order may be inspected free of charge at County Hall, Hertford between the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm (excluding weekends, bank and public holidays).

If you have any queries about the proposed Order please contact Christopher Brown tel. 0300 123 4047 at Hertfordshire County Council.
