Station redesign disrupts Hatfield bus services

Train bosses have appealed for patience while they restructure the bus stops at Hatfield Railway Station, promising long term improvements.
As the station area is being comprehensively redeveloped, buses will not be able to use the forecourt to stop and turn round in until December 20.
Meanwhile, northbound buses are stopping at an existing “lay-up stop” immediately south of the station entrance, and southbound services are calling at a temporary stop on the opposite side of the road.
As the southbound stop will be in use at least a year until the completion of the entire project, county council highways engineers are providing a “structured pedestrian walkway” across the A1000, and controlling traffic with new lanes.
Jonathan Morris tweeted: “Hatfield station is chaos. Buses, taxis, cars, pedestrians + lights out, improper crossing, no signs... Ticking time bomb.”
