HCC Temporary Closing of Bulls Lane and Meadow Close

NOTICE is given that Hertfordshire County Council intends to make an Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, to prohibit all vehicular traffic from using the following lengths of roads (“the Roads”), except for access:-

  1. that length of Bulls Lane, Hatfield from a point in line with the western boundary of No.9 Bulls Lane north eastwards to a point in line with the eastern boundary of No.11 Bulls Lane, a distance of approximately 75m.

An alternative route will be via Bulls Lane, Station Road, Dixons Hill Road, A1000 Great North Road, Bell Lane and Bulls Lane.

  1. that length of Meadow Close, Hatfield from its junction with Bulls Lane north westwards for a distance of approximately 10m.

There is no alternative route available for vehicles when the works are being carried out. However vehicular access to properties in this road will be maintained whenever possible throughout the duration of the works.

The Order is needed because utility service works are proposed to be executed on or near the Roads.

If the Order is made, it shall come into force on 5 June 2023 for a period of up to 18 months. However, the restrictions specified shall only take effect at the times indicated by signs on or near the Roads.
