A new hospital for Watford will take a further step forward later this month when a new road opens to the public. Thomas Sawyer Way runs for a mile and a half from Dalton Way to Watford General Hospital and will speed up journeys for ambulances to and from the hospital for ambulances. The road is due to open on November 16. The new road is named after Captain Tom Sawyer, a Watford resident who lived in Blackwell Drive close to the Campus scheme who was killed in Afghanistan in 2009 at the age of 26. In recognition of the road’s positive impact on hospital access for the population it serves, the Department of Health has provided £9 million for the funding. Additional funding came from Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership which gave the scheme a £6 million loan to encourage and support jobs and business in the local area. Details of how the new road changes people’s journey’s to and from Watford General Hospital can be found on the Watford Health Campus website http://watfordhealthcampus.org/?p=1327. Hear more about what’s happening in your local community in the November edition of MyWatfordNews, which will be distributed on November 11.
