The work will start on Monday with drainage works at Southdown Road (between Bull Road and Harpenden Hall) and Arden Grove and is expected to last for two weeks.

Drainage improvements will also take place at Sun Lane (between Carlton Road and Tennyson Road) from February 13, for one week and Southdown Road (between the junctions with Walkers Road and Piggottshill Lane) from February 20, for two weeks.

Road resurfacing works will take place on the A1081 St Albans Road/High Street, from February 3, for one week.

Stuart Pile, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, said: “Some degree of disruption and delay is to be expected as a result of these essential works to improve access and drainage in the town. While we do not anticipate any significant impact on local roads, we would like to thank residents and road users for their patience and understanding.”
