Oaklands and Woolmer Green: consultation closing 27th February 2023

By | 18th February 2023

Hertfordshire County Council are consulting on plans to make walking and cycling to school safer in Oaklands and Woolmer Green. At the moment they are asking for initial comments and will then form a more detailed plan of works which will be available in the summer. WelHatCycling would like to encourage all people on cycles to comment on these proposals, especially local residents as we know there are major concerns about road safety for children as the B197 is a busy fast road.

We expect to the plans to include:

  • 30 mph speed limits in each village.
  • Changes to the pavement to make them wider and include cycle paths
  • Safe walking and cycling routes along B197 from the schools to shops and residential areas
  • Traffic light controlled crossings of the main B197 road.

The Oaklands Primary School proposal is for something like this:
