ROAD closures are set to be put in place for the next four weekends when essential bridge repairs begin in WGC today (Friday).
Weather-permitting, Hertfordshire Highways will start re-surfacing and re-waterproofing the Twentieth Mile Bridge, on Broadwater Road, this evening.
The structure, which carries traffic over the Great Northern Route railway line, is so named because it is located exactly 20 miles from London King's Cross.
Road closures will be in enforced westbound, between the Osborn Way and Chequers roundabouts, from Friday 8pm until Monday 6am for each of the next four weekends.
The work was originally scheduled to begin on March 6, but was delayed for logistical reasons.
Speaking about the repairs, Stuart Pile, the county council's executive member for highways, transport and rural affairs, said: "Safety is extremely high on our list of priorities, and these measures are needed to help protect road and rail users alike.
