Council roadshows offer residents chance to meet A120 Little Hadham bypass team
Two roadshows will tell residents about the £40m A120 Little Hadham bypass and flood alleviation scheme which is getting under way.
The events will be held at Little Hadham village hall on Thursday (June 13) from 3pm to 7pm and on Thursday, June 20 from 5pm to 9pm.
Both will give residents an opportunity to meet the project team and site engineers who will be working on construction of the bypass from Bishop’s Stortford and on dams to safeguard village homes.
Hertfordshire County Council, working in partnership with the Environment Agency and GRAHAM, is creating a single-carriageway bypass running to the north of Little Hadham between two new roundabouts, Tile Kiln and Hadham Park.
The scheme aims to improve air quality and benefit the county’s economy, with quicker transport links to Stansted Airport.
It also includes measures to manage flooding from the River Ash, Albury Tributary and Lloyd Taylor Drain.
Cllr Phil Bibby, HCC's cabinet member for highways and environment, said: “The bypass and flood alleviation scheme will help to support the growth we’re expecting in Hertfordshire over the coming years, making a big difference to our road network while also improving the quality of life for residents in the Little Hadham area.
"These events are an opportunity for local residents to meet the team who will be working on the bypass to discuss what will be happening and any concerns they have.”
Work on the bypass is scheduled to start this month, with completion and opening in autumn 2020.
