A major route into St Albans city centre will be closed from Monday to allow for drainage repair works.

The stretch of Victoria Street between Alma Road/Beaconsfield Road and Station Way by St Albans City Station will be closed for four days between 9.30am and 3pm.

Herts County Council contractor Ringway has asked residents to move their cars before the work starts, as any cars which are blocking the work may be moved to a neighbouring street.

Neighbours have also been asked to cut back hedges and vegetation which overhang the footway.

The works could be postponed if there is bad weather.

For questions or concerns regarding the works, email contact@hertfordshire.gov.uk or ring 0300 123 4047, quoting permit number BR6401000149168.
