posted 15 Sept 2013, 11:24 by Unknown user
We have been given advance notification of the overnight closure of A412, Park Road in Rickmansworth on Thursday 19th September.

Carriageway Resurfacing and patching works are due to commence on 
  • A412 Park Road, Rickmansworth, between 
  • the Roundabout with A412 Watford Road / The Green / top of Scotts Hill, and 
  • the Roundabout with A412 Rectory Road / A404 Chorleywood Rd junction 
  • on Thursday the 19th September 2013, from 8pm to 5am 
  • are programmed to take approximately 1 night to complete, weather permitting.
Herts Highways will be replacing sections of the existing worn out road, replacing damaged iron covers and re-applying the road markings.

In order to create a safe working environment for the workforce and members of the public alike, the works will be completed using a full road closure.
These works will be undertaken using a road closure undertaken overnight between 08:00pm and 5:00am, Monday to Friday only.  However, if we encounter unforeseen circumstances on site, it is possible we may work outside these hours. We will aim to complete the noisiest operations such as removing the old road and jack hammering by midnight to reduce the disturbance to nearby residential properties. Other works will still continue after this.

The main diversion route for through traffic will be as follows via -     

A412 Watford Road, Scotts Hill, Park Road, Rectory Road, A404 Riverside Drive, Church Street, A4145 Moor Lane, Tolpits Lane, Hagden Lane, Vicarge Road, A4178 Merton Road, Cassio Road, A412 Rickmansworth Road, Watford Road, Park Road and visa-versa. .

Vehicular access to properties during the working hours will be maintained and controlled by gatemen at each end of the closure but there may be delays. It is also possible that traffic may be advised to use alternative access routes if the gatemen deem it unsafe to enter the construction area. Pedestrian access will not be affected.

Some degree of disruption and delay can be expected as a result of the works and whilst we will make every effort to minimise these please allow extra time for any journeys you may make while the works are in progress. We greatly appreciate your patience and co-operation.
Herts County Council or their Contractors will not approach you offering to carry out works to your property. Any cold calling of this nature by people claiming to represent Herts County Council should be viewed with suspicion, and caution. They will not have Herts County Council authority or approval.

The work is weather dependent and from time to time unforeseen circumstances arise, any changes to the proposed start date, duration or working hours will be notified on the information boards at either end of your street and will be available at or by calling 0300 123 40 47 and by quoting Herts Highways Permit No:BR0201000028040
