Parts of Luton Road and High Street in Harpenden will be closed at night between Tuesday, February 27 and Tuesday, March 6.

Carriageway resurfacing will take place between 9pm and 5am on the junction with Coopers End Lane and the junction with Vaughan Road for five nights, excluding weekends.

In addition to resurfacing, the work will include road markings, the reinstatement of pedestrian studs, and gully cleaning.

Herts County Council’s cabinet member for highways Ralph Sangster said: “These works form part of the county council’s ongoing commitment to maintain and improve our roads for the benefit of all road users in Hertfordshire.

“I realise the road closure on this busy road is likely to cause disruption and inconvenience to motorists and would ask everyone for their co-operation while the work is in progress.”

Any changes to the proposed start date, duration, or working hours will be announced on

Bus service routes may be affected by these works. For details of any changes visit and look in the ‘service disruptions’ section.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
