Digswell Park Road (to the North of Welwyn Garden City) is a lovely road for walking/cycling, spoilt only by motor traffic using it as a short cut rather than using the A1000 and Hertford Road. Thanks to some shiny new bollards, this through-traffic has been stopped – great news! In addition cyclists and pedestrians exiting Digswell Park Road onto the A1000 and wanting to access the dual-use path on the far side will have an easier and safer crossing due to installation of short lengths of access paths (done) and a central island (should be coming soon). The official description is:
“The scheme – which is being funded by the Department of Transport’s Emergency Active Travel Fund – will also benefit the Centenary Walk route and provide a safer walking and cycling route for school children travelling between Digswell and WGC”.
