Pedestrian Crossing on Chesham Road

The Parish Council is aware of the situation with the removal of the pedestrian crossing on Chesham Road and we are currently in discussion with Dacorum Borough Council and Herts County Council regarding this matter.  We have been informed by Herts County Council  that before the permanent signals can be commissioned and turned on, the contractor needs to complete the road surfacing and line marking.  These works will need to be done under a road closure and this is being organised for the 28 and 29 October and the permanent signals will be operating from the end of October.
