Lib Dems claim victory over speeding in Welham Green
WORK to make a dangerous road safer for pedestrians and motorists alike has begun, following a campaign.
Staff from Herts Highways are currently refreshing road lines, cutting back vegetation and renewing the anti-skid surface on Dixons Hill Road, a notorious accident blackspot in Welham Green.
The site will also be considered for extra funding so work can be carried out to cut speeding.
The work follows the submission of a residents’ petition - organised by Welwyn Hatfield Lib Dems - to the county council.
Parliamentary candidate Paul Zukowskyj said: “This is a fantastic result for the residents of Welham Green.

“For too long they have had to take their life in their hands to get onto Dixons Hill Road from their streets.
“Hopefully when Herts Highways sort out the speeding problem, they (residents) will feel less like they’re playing Russian Roulette every time they drive out of their road.”
