Hadham Road in Bishop's Stortford to reopen two months earlier than scheduled after gas works





Road works by a gas company which closed a major route into Bishop's Stortford will finish on Friday (March 10) – two months ahead of schedule.

Last month, Cllr Graham McAndrew, the Herts county councillor for Bishop's Stortford Rural and the county council's deputy cabinet member for highways and transport, told the Indie the rolling works on the A1250 Hadham Road by Cadent Gas, which began on January 4 and were originally due to end on May 8, "were progressing better than expected".

It was predicted the road would be reopened by mid-April, "subject to weather and no major engineering difficulties".

But on Monday (Mar 6), Cllr McAndrew issued a statement revealing the good news for long-suffering motorists and residents that the road closure would be "removed on the evening of March 10".

Related works in nearby side streets will continue beyond this date with "minimal impact to the road network".

Cllr McAndrew added the county's Network Management department "would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this project".

Closure of Hadham Road plus footpath repairs in Dunmow Road added to congestion in the Bishop's Stortford and Harlow areas at the weekend as closure of the northbound M11 between junctions 7A and 8 led to motorists being diverted via the westbound A414, northbound A10 and eastbound A120.
