Road closure early warning

A section of Wiggenhall Road will be closed to southbound traffic (towards Bushey/ Oxhey and Eastbury Road) from 11 January 2016 for around 6 weeks

Published: Monday, 30th November 2015

The works to replace a gas main are crucial to the construction of the new road which will speed up access to Watford General Hospital.

Highways engineers at Hertfordshire County Council have reviewed the plans but commuters are being urged to avoid Wiggenhall Road during this time, and use an alternative route in and out of town.

Councillor Iain Sharpe, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration & Development said:

“We are sorry in advance for the disruption that this will cause, but it is a necessary piece of work so that we can deliver improved access to Watford General Hospital. We will do all we can to minimise disruption and to keep residents informed of progress on the gas main works.”

Local diversions will be in place and will be well sign-posted.
