News from Hertfordshire County Council…


The public consultation on our Active Travel Fund schemes is now open. We are asking for you to share your views on the cycling and walking improvements proposed in eight locations across six towns in the county.

Hertfordshire was awarded £6.4million in November 2020 from the Department for Transport as part of the Active Travel Fund which supports local authorities to create safer, easier to use spaces for those who walk and cycle.

To understand public opinion on our initial ideas, we held a four-week engagement exercise in Spring 2021 and we have used these comments to help inform our design work.

We are now ready to share our more detailed proposals across six towns in the county and find out your views on the following eight schemes:

  • London Road, Buntingford
  • Boundary Way Roundabout, Hemel Hempstead
  • Central St Albans
  • North Road, Stevenage
  • Stratford Way junction, Watford
  • Wiggenhall Road, Watford
  • Bridge Road, Welwyn Garden City
  • Digswell Park Road, Welwyn Garden City

We are keen to ensure as much participation as possible through this consultation exercise, so we ask if you can help us raise awareness by sharing this information with your contacts and networks so we can obtain as many responses as possible.

The consultation is open, and you can share your views until Friday 30 July 2021.

Printed copies of the proposals are available on request, please email this address or telephone 0300 123 4047.
