Re: Hertfordshire Mercury

The sooner it's put out of our misery the better. Poor reporting and an advert laden website. They're closing their print titles and focusing more on their Live brand. http://www.pressgazette.co.uk/editor-of-six-regional-newspapers-is-first-to-go-in-mass-redundancies-at-trinity-mirror-under-new-digi...

The banner looks as if it was done by a schoolchild. And why the railroad train in the top left?

Re: Looks like Bypass is getting closer

At the risk of repeating myself, at the moment a Hertford Bypass is simply a concept (the word used in the LTP). If there is broad agreement on the principle then the County Council will start looking at potential routes and associated costs before staging public consultations. Obviously, the shorte...

Re: Looks like Bypass is getting closer

I don't think there would be huge danger of "infilling" by developers between Hertford and a bypass if there are no junctions off it between Cole Green and the A10 and it is sufficiently far away from the town. This is what the draft Local Transport Plan has to say about a Hertford Bypass (the bold...

Re: Looks like Bypass is getting closer

As I recall, provision of a Hertford Bypass is just one part of improvements to the A414 corridor overall, and strategically important for the development of Harlow North and Birchall Garden Suburb.

Re: Bircherley Green

In the Mercury.. A Beefeater is proposed. Jesus wept. Over-priced, brown food. Yes I am being snobby. If it's in The Mercury it must be true :roll: Very good. Anyway, it's a wider issue. The scheme was conceived a while back when mid-market food and beverage was doing well, and operators were expan...

Re: Looks like Bypass is getting closer

The Local Transport Plan mentions the principle of a Hertford Bypass - nothing more. If the principle gets a generally warm reception then funding and routing would be the next stage. Then of course there'll be public consultations etc before a proposed budget is put forward. I would be surprised to...

Re: Rush Green McDonalds chaos

Then there are the cars I saw coming out of the drive through, just to park in front of the vacuum/air/water points to eat their 'meal'. I mentioned this to the BP staff and apparently the council aren't interested. To be fair, the forecourt is private property. The council have no jurisdiction. If...
