As anyone caught by traffic jams during rush hour in Marshalswick yesterday (Monday) will know, roadworks have begun at the junction of Sandpit Lane and Beechwood Avenue.
Motorists face four weeks of disruption as Ringway is carrying out a £40,000 scheme to reduce accidents at the busy intersection.
The improvements, carried out on behalf of Herts county council, involve updating the traffic signal equipment to include a puffin crossing.
Cllr Terry Douris, the council’s cabinet member for highways, has apologised for the disruption as temporary four-way traffic signals are in place to control vehicles.
He said: “We appreciate that this is a major and busy route and this work is likely to cause disruption and inconvenience to motorists.
You may also want to watch:
“We apologise for this and ask everyone for their co-operation while the work is in progress.”
Pedestrian barriers are being provided to separate passersby from the works area.
