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 that length of School Lane, Welwyn from its junction with Ayot St Peter Road north eastwards for a distance of approximately 1098 metres (“the Road”), except for access.

An alternative route will be via Ayot St Peter Road, Ayot Green Lane, B197 Digswell Hill, London Road, High Street and School Lane.

The Order is needed because the replacement of existing telegraph poles and the installation of new telegraph poles are proposed to be executed on or near the Road.

If the Order is made, it shall come into force on 28 January 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 Road.

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 Rikki Roberts tel. 01543 547118 at RNR UK Ltd or Andrew Roberts tel. 0300 123 4047 at Hertfordshire County Council.
