Diversions will be put in place to allow for five days of maintenance work to be carried out on a St Albans street, starting from tomorrow (Monday).

The £31,000 highways scheme affects the B691, Victoria Street, between 9.30am and 3.30pm from Monday, February 13 to Friday, February 17.

The work, carried out by Eurovia and Ringway on behalf of Herts county council, is expected to be completed over five days, weather permitting.

On Monday (13) and Tuesday (14), Ringway will undertake carriageway resurfacing from the junction of Marlborough Road/Upper Marlborough Road to the junction of Ridgmont Road, using a full road closure.

The diversion routes during this closure will be on Beaconsfield Road, Hatfield Road and Stanhope Road.

The diversion routes during these closures will be via St Peter’s Street, Hatfield Road, Stanhope Road and Grimston Road.
