Road repairs to the tune of £7,000 are being carried out in a busy St Albans street today (Tuesday) and tomorrow.

The scheme, carried out by Eurovia on behalf of Herts county council, has begun on the raised pedestrian crossing on High Street, between the Peahen junction at Chequer Street and Verulam Road.

Broken granite setts are being replaced in the area.

The council’s cabinet member for highways Cllr Terry Douris said work will take two whole days to complete, using a full 24-hour road closure on both days.

Signed alternative routes are in place.

Cllr Douris warned that access to properties will be disrupted, and work could be delayed as it is weather dependent.

He added: “We appreciate these works are likely to cause disruption and inconvenience to motorists and would ask everyone for their co-operation while the work is in progress.”

Bus service routes may be affected also – for details of any changes visit and look in the ‘service disruptions’ section.
