Re: Disappearing cycle lanes on North Road

Exciting development on this one. Spotted a trio of high viz clad chaps huddled under a tree on North Rd this week, enumerating (that is, counting traffic). Suspect they were counting bikes not cars to help the County take a view on whether to replace the cycle lanes.

Re: Disappearing cycle lanes on North Road

Thank you Steve. I'm aware of the Commissioners' opinions. And I've offered mine. Not as an expert by any means, but as a cyclist (think baggy commuter rather than Lycra racer) who covers 3000 miles a year in Hertford and London. I remain of the view that anything that serves to remind drivers and c...

Re: Disappearing cycle lanes on North Road

Disagree completely. Along that stretch there is insufficient space for "proper" segregation, and as someone who rides them everyday I do find that drivers try to keep out of them. Not the gold standard but better than nowt. Which as Highwayman says is what we have (temporarily I hope) for now. Woul...

Re: Oyster coming to Hertford North

Turned in my season ticket. Saving money hand over fist, not least because I'm an early bird who taps in before 630am.

Re: Oyster coming to Hertford North

I don't think it will be that quick. The consultation on extending Pay as You Go was only launched today.

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

"No route, no funding, vague costing, essential for the EHDC district plan, delivery by 2024. So that's all good then."

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

I'd agree. An Inquiry is a dead cert. But there's something like 3 years worth of survey, option design work and consultation (including consideration of alternatives) to be done before even an application could be made for Highway and land acquisition powers. And at that point the County would need...

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

It will be very interesting to hear what Councillor Ashley says this week - I'll try to get along if I can. While I think everyone would accept that living in a town which "locks up" twice a day for at least two - three hours is not great, I do feel the County Council have a tricky balance to achiev...

Take his constituents for fools. This has been in the works for a few months.
