What we're doing and why
We have heard the concerns raised by residents and users of the town. To help us understand what is causing these problems, we will be trialling a return to part time signals at the junction to see how the road network responds and inform our decisions going forward.
With around 30% of pre covid-19 traffic travelling on the A414 through Hertford being associated with local journeys, we would encourage everyone to think about the difference that small changes can make to our local environment and where possible consider walking, cycling or using the bus for local trips.
This will help to tackle climate change, reduce air pollution and improve people’s health. We are particularly reminded of this on World Day (22 April) where we reaffirm our aspirations to tackle environmental issues.
The council has ongoing investment programmes to improve the highway network, including schemes to improve facilities for people when they walk and cycle. These are part of ambitious plans to help the County become net zero greenhouse gas before 2050.
