Roadworks to close ‘major and busy’ industrial estate road overnight


A £500,000 scheme to resurface a road in Hemel Hempstead’s industrial estate will see a series of closures on Maylands Avenue for 16 nights.

Starting next Friday, June 6, the work on the A4147 will see crews working into the early hours to replace worn out sections of road and damaged iron covers, as well as reapplying road markings.

The project means there will be lane closures and temporary traffic lights in place along the stretch between the St Albans Road and Swallowdale Lane roundabouts from 8pm to 5am for the first week.

Then, from June 16 to 27, a full road closure with a signed diversion route will take place during the same hours.

Herts County Council cabinet member for highways Terry Douris: “These works form part of our ongoing commitment to maintain and improve our roads for the benefit of all road users in Hertfordshire.

“We appreciate that this is a major and busy route and understand that these significant resurfacing works are likely to cause disruption and inconvenience to motorists. We apologise for this and would ask everyone for their co-operation while the work is in progress.”

Any changes to the proposed start date, duration or working hours will be announced on the information boards on site and online. Click here to access the site.
