CONTROVERSIAL plans to close Hatfield Tunnel while essential refurbishments take place for TWO years will be explained at a public exhibition.

The Highways Agency will close the northbound carriageway from July 2009 to May 2010 - then close the southbound lanes until April 2011.

The plans, exclusively revealed by the WHT back in October, were met with heavy criticism and fears of traffic chaos on the surrounding road network.

A public exhibition is being held in Hatfield for the public and councillors to lay out in detail how problems are set to be avoided.

It will take place at the Ramada Jarvis hotel, St Albans Road West, Hatfield from 2pm to 9pm on Friday, March 27 and from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, March 28.
