Long Lane Closed - last week of October

We've been notifed by Hertfordshire Highways that EDF have applied for a one week closure of Long Lane in Heronsgate - between Stockport Road and the roundabout with the M25 Junction 17.

Letter from Hertfordshire Highways:
EDF Energy will be carrying out Network improvement work in the area. In order for these works to be carried out their will be a requirement for the TEMPORARY CLOSING OF LONG LANE, HERONSGATE. The works will take place in Long Lane, Heronsgate from it’s junction with Stockport Road south eastwards for a distance of approximately 163 meters.

It is anticipated that the section of road will be closed for up to 7 days, sometime during the period 25 October 2010 and 31 October 2010, when signs are in place.  An alternative signed route will be provided for traffic whilst the road closure is in place.

In conjunction with our closure, Herts Highways have arranged for the road gullies to be cleaned and Veolia Water may carry out works on their network thus avoiding future disruption. On behalf of EDF Energy please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause, we very much thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Although this closure will be annoying for residents, the good news is that Herts Highways and Veolia Water are going to try and get on with other works at the same time as EDF have the road closed. The gullies in Long Lane have been blocked and cascading water down the highway for a long time now, and it's hoped that Herts Highways will be able to get these unblocked as part of this closure and prevent the sort of damage we experienced last winter due to water cascading down the surface of the road.

The other good news is that there have been significant repairs to Stag Lane (between Rendlesham Way and Shepherds Lane) and Shepherds Lane (from Stag Lane down to the M25 bridge) undertaken within the past month, and as a result those Residents who can take advantage of this alternative route whilst the closure is in place on Long Lane will find a much improved road surface. The official signed diversion route will be via main roads in Rickmansworth, A404 Chorleywood, and then via Shire Lane and Heronsgate.
