A year after A120 Little Hadham bypass opened, the village gets another new route





Toy car drivers, cyclists and scooter riders lined up for the opening of Little Hadham's second new road in a little over a year.

After the A120 bypass opened to traffic in December 2021, Little Hadham Primary School now has its own early years 'ring road' – and there are no signs of potholes or impending road works!

It held a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by pupils, parents, staff, chair of governors Keith Hutt and Herts county councillor Graham McAndrew (Con, Bishop's Stortford South), the council's deputy executive member for highways and transport, who helped secure grant funding for the safety surfacing, which has also been upgraded beneath the playground slide and climbing frame.

Early years team leader Catherine Lawrence said: "The children have been really involved throughout this project. The contractors, SureGreen Ltd, went out of their way to talk to the children and to explain each stage of the project to them.

"This new roadway is going to greatly enhance the opportunities for the children to play and interact in our outdoor area."

Louise Groot, mother of early years pupil Francis, said: "It was great to see the opening of the new track. The children watched it being built with much excitement and made flags on the day.

"The teachers at Little Hadham do a brilliant job to excite the children's imagination in their outdoor space and the track gives them another source of inspiration."

The opening ceremony took place on Tuesday March 7.
