Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment 2016

I think a car club would be really good in Hertford. We used to use streetcar in London and we'd have found it quite useful as an occasional second car as opposed to having to hire from somewhere either inconvenient or with not great opening hours. We're also thinking about trying to encourage it in...

Re: Transforming Rail consultation (Hertford North)

I guess it depends when you're travelling. As far as I can see all but one of the existing fastest journeys departing Hertford North between 6am and 8:30am will have increased journey times on the new timetable. This seems to be because Hertford passengers are paying the price of stopping at Harrin...

Transforming Rail consultation (Hertford North)

GTR have started consulting on next year's timetable. I found it by accident as I hadn't noticed anything in the station (though I haven't been looking that hard so there may be posters up). I'd say it's a minor improvement overall from Hertford North but the journey times in the evening are longer ...

Re: Aldi

I like their optimism for the streetscape - lots of people wandering around the A414 like it's a park!

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment 2016

The heritage statement contains some quite helpful pictures showing the differences in various views between now and after development. It's also got some entertaining architectural criticism of lots of existing buildings and (unsurprisingly) praise for the new design. The public realm doc is also i...

Hartham Common Cafe

Does anyone know what's going on with the little cafe/coffee shop/ice cream place between the playground and Hartham Leisure Centre? It's been fenced off for a while so just wondering if it's being developed. I couldn't turn up anything from a few searches...

Great Northern timetable getting worse

I appreciate this is minor compared the problems on the other parts of GTR's franchises, but I saw this morning great Northern have added another 2 minutes to the morning train timetables. So an earlier departure and the same arrival time. They already added 1 minute in each of the last two years so...

Re: Streetlights Mead Lane

They're supposed to fix it in 20 working days, though admittedly it does just say they "aim to achieve that". http://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/transtreets/highways/hhonlineservices/hfr/timescales/ They really are useless at maintaining a safe environment to walk in at night - Benge...

Re: Bridge House Car Park to Close

Considering the size of the town, and the limited roads, they should do far more to encourage walking generally (not just to the station). The general state of the walking provision is dreadful (too narrow, uneven, blocked (or partially blocked) by parked cars, partially blocked by overgrown hedges ...

Re: Hertford Bypass

Widening the road might help the traffic jams, but it wouldn't do anything about the fact you've got lots of lots of cars driving through a town that they don't want to be in and the people in the town don't want them to be in. You'd still have Hertford cut in two by a really busy road. Personally I...
