RESIDENTS had cause to celebrate when the speed humps on a Harpenden road were taken up - but their delight has been short-lived.
The humps in Crabtree Lane were removed when it was resurfaced nearly two months ago and that led to the belief that they had been removed for good.
One resident, Alan Hall, of Gilpin Green, said it was a pleasure to drive home up Crabtree Lane now that it has been resurfaced and the humps removed.
He went on: "It is no longer necessary to divert via alternative devious routes in order to avoid having ones car and person shaken to pieces"
But Mr Hall and his fellow residents will be disappointed - the road humps are coming back.
A spokesperson for Herts Highways said that the speed cushions were taken up when the road was resurfaced but it was only temporary.
