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.

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.
