Update: the two week road closure will now be from Saturday 8th September. Herts Highways will carry out the drainage works and will be converting the road to a 20mph zone at the same time with speed tables

Two sets of Roadworks are planned for Heronsgate Road over the next month.

A new Mains Water connection is scheduled for 40 Heronsgate Road, Chorleywood on the 30th July 2012. Following discussions with Hertfordshire Highways Department, Veolia Water have been requested to do the works under a Road Closure to ensure that working practises are safe and that traffic calming measures are in place.  Please note ‘access only’ will be in place for all residents. These works will commence at 9.00am on 30th July 2012 and be completed by 18:00pm on the 31st July 2012. A full reinstatement of the affected areas will also be undertaken at this time.

And then later in August works will be undertaken to help resolve flooding issues in Heronsgate Road, between Old Shire Lane & Stag Lane, where Herts Highways will carry out drainage works.  These works will involve providing a new section of drainage, which will connect to the existing system and provide additional gullies. Also part of the existing system which has been damaged by HGVs, service utilities and root infestation will be replaced.  Finally two new manholes will be installed to make maintenance more accessible.

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. The work is programmed to start on Saturday 18th August and should be completed within 15 days. This period includes Bank Holiday Monday 27th August, which may be used, dependant on programme progress.  Herts Highways state that will be working between the hours of 09:30 and 18:30, Monday-Sunday and to ensure the safety of both our workforce and members of the public alike we will be undertaking the works using a full 24hr road closure between No 20/21 Heronsgate Road (Old MacDonald’s Day Nursery) to No 11/12 Heronsgate Road. Access will only be maintained within the road closure for residents and businesses with no alternative route to their premises. Access to the works area will be controlled by gatemen and vehicles will be allowed to enter the site when it is safe to do so. Please be aware that there may be periods when there are delays in being able to access the site.

During the periods of road closure a diversion route will be in operation via Shire Lane / Lower Road / Quickley Lane / Rendlesham Way / Stag Lane and vice versa
