Roadworks on Hatfield Road between St Albans and Hatfield

Published: 24 Jun 2019

Major roadworks will be taking place on the A1057 (Hatfield Road) between the junction with Oaklands Lane and the Alban Park Industrial Estate between 29 June and 24 August.

The works are being carried out by Cadent Gas Ltd to replace gas mains running beneath the road.

The road will remain open while the works take place with temporary traffic lights controlling the traffic past the works. The lights will be manually operated between 6am and 8pm to respond to traffic flows and minimise delays.

We expect these roadworks to cause significant delays during peak times. Please allow extra time for any journeys through this area while the works are in progress.

Phil Bibby, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “Utility companies often need to carry out work on the highway and it’s our role to make sure these are properly managed and coordinated. We’ve permitted these works to take place over the summer to minimise disruption as traffic is lighter over the school summer holidays.”
