Hertfordshire County Council have posted plans to close part of Northdown Road to install a mains power extension for a housing development on The Downs.

The planned works start from the Travellers Lane end of the road and would reach as far as the junction at The Downs.

The works are slated to begin on April 7 and make the road access-only at scheduled times.

The scheduled times will be signposted nearby.

Though the council order outlines a time frame of “up to 18 months”, this is the standard period applied for in a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order.

The currently planned mains power extension, however is due to be finished by April 20.
