A MOTORWAY which links St Albans to Hemel Hempstead is in the process of being downgraded to an A road.

The Highways Agency is reclassifying the M10 and has already changed the signs southbound.

Said a Highways Agency spokesperson: "The M10 is to become part of the A414, running between St Albans and Hemel Hempstead. The reclassification will be completed in the coming months and will be fully publicised in due course."

Motorists wishing to travel between the two towns can also use the new parallel roads between Junctions 7 and 8 of the M1, a project which was completed last month as part of the scheme to widen to four lanes in each direction the stretch of the M1 motorway between the M25 and Luton.
