Some sections of carriageway are going to be replaced. Richard Roberts, your local county councillor, has recommended it is a priority and is funding it from the Highway Locality Budget scheme. Information about locality budgets is online at

What are we doing?     

We will be carrying out works to replace various sections of worn out carriageway, between Shantock Hall Lane and Pudds Cross.

Dates & Times

The work is programmed to start on Tuesday 9th December, and should be completed within 9 days. We will be working between the hours of 07.30 and 17.30.

How will this affect you?

We will need to close the road during these times in order to provide a safe environment for our workforce and highway users. We will endeavour to maintain access to properties or businesses, however, this may not be possible at all times and there may be a slight delay in obtaining access during specific works operations. Access for Emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

Do not park in the works area during the publicised dates and times. If parked vehicles are holding up the works and we cannot contact the owner, we have the legal right to move and relocate them to a nearby street.

What are we asking you to do?

Please make sure that you move your car out of the works area before the works starts.

Additional Information

  • The work is weather dependent and from time to time unforeseen circumstances arise, any changes to the proposed start date, duration or working hours will be notified on the information boards at either end of your street, on our website or by scanning the QR code on this letter.
  • Questions or concerns regarding these specific works can be answered by email: or telephone 0300 123 4047.
  • Neither Hertfordshire County Council, nor their contractors will approach you offering to carry out works to your property. Any cold calling of this nature by people claiming to represent Hertfordshire should be viewed with suspicion and be reported to us.

As part of our commitment to the continuous improvement of our service, we would like to hear your views on works in your area. We’d be grateful if you would take the time to log on to and complete a short survey.  We value your opinion, and measuring your perception of key areas of our service enables
