Bridge Street in Bishop's Stortford due for 24/7 closure for four weeks in September
Motorists in Bishop's Stortford town centre face delays throughout most of September as a result of a key road being closed for four weeks for electric cable installation works.
Hertfordshire County Council highways tweeted on Friday (August 27) to say Bridge Street will be shut 24/7 from 8am on Wednesday September 1 to 6pm on Tuesday September 28.
The one.network website states Bridge Street traffic will be diverted along North Street, down Hadham Road and along Link Road – and the one-way system in Water Lane will be suspended from September 1 to 17.
A spokeswoman for Herts County Council said the Bridge Street works were in relation to the Goodsyard development, which is regenerating the area around Bishop's Stortford railway station.
Cable-laying works have been taking place in Station Road, Dane Street and The Causeway over the past few months.
Before the September four-week closure, temporary traffic signals will be in place from 6pm on Saturday (August 28) until 5am on Tuesday (August 31) at the crossroads junction of Market Square, Bridge Street, High Street and North Street.
Palmers Lane, which links Bridge Street and Market Square, is shut to traffic until September 22 for building work at the rear of Dorringtons the baker, Humphrey's the butcher and Nostimo the café, deli and ice cream parlour. It remains open to pedestrians.
