Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) have launched a consultation on the next steps for the two new cycle routes in WGC, the bollarding of Digswell Park Road and the cycle lanes on Hunters Bridge. Please can all WelHatCycling supporters reply to this consultation so HCC hear your voices?
What we’d like to see and suggest you add to your responses:
- Digswell Park Road (map): This needs extending at the north end with a safe crossing of Hertford Road and link to Welwyn North station.
- Hunters Bridge (map): This needs extending around the corner at Osborn Way and linking in to Stonehills and through the town centre to Longcroft Lane. It also should be extended across The Campus to both Oaklands College and Campus West so as to create safe links to all the major town centre facilities. At the Broadwater Road end the traffic lights need pedestrian and cycle phases rather than guess and run.
We also think you can point out the benefits of both routes, including the much safer crossing of Bessemer Road to Digswell Park Road and the crossing of Bridge Road at the Broadwater Road traffic lights.
You can also comment on the existing cycle routes including those in Hatfield via this page.
