‘Major route’ is to be closed over nine nights for works


A £200,000 scheme to repair the worn-out surface of part of the A4146 between Leighton Buzzard and Hemel Hempstead is to start on Monday.

The work, which will be carried out between 8pm and 5am Monday to Friday over nine nights, will see the stretch of the Leighton Buzzard and Dagnall Road improved from the Link Road roundabout in Hemel Hempstead to the junctions for Hudnall Lane and Pedley Hill.

Herts County Council cabinet member for highways Terry Douris said: “This essential maintenance work is likely to cause disruption and inconvenience both to motorists and residents.

“Our contractors Eurovia will work hard to minimise any disruption, but we ask everyone for their co-operation.”

Vehicle access to properties will be maintained whenever possible and signed alternative routes will be in place. For more information visit www.hertsdirect.org/roadworks.
