Welwyn High Street to close for a day to remove barriers

Work to return Welwyn High Street back to a two-way system is taking place this week.
The one way system was initially put in place at the end of May to help promote social distancing.
However many residents felt the barriers and lack of on street parking had a significant and detrimental effect on the shops along the road.
The work to remove them will now take place this week, subject to weather conditions.
Hertfordshire County Council highways officers will be working with Ringway to remove some of the temporary social distancing barriers to enable two-way traffic on Welwyn High Street with car parking spaces reinstated where possible.

Some barriers will be retained to allow social distancing in key areas as well as to narrow the carriageway to promote a low speed environment.
