Clarendon Road in Watford is about to undergo a major transformation programme.
It is part of a major development plan that transport bosses say will significantly improve the Beechen Grove junction and surrounding area for pedestrians and cyclists.
Watford Borough Council, alongside with Hertfordshire County Council, is carrying out the programme in two phases.
The first, which will run from Monday September 24 to December 2018, will focus on improving the stretch of Clarendon Road which leads to Watford Market.
Other key renovation works will see the infill of the subway that runs under Beechen Grove to link the two sides of Clarendon Road and to upgrade the surface.
Additionally, the council say they will remove unwanted street clutter, introduce new paving, upgrade the traffic signals and resurface the carriageway. Better signage, landscaping and waste bins will also form part of the transformation of the area.
Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor said: “We’ve already carried out a number of improvements in the High Street by widening pavements and stopping vehicles from illegally driving through the town centre.
We’re now looking to extend these improvements through Clarendon Road by resurfacing the area, making it safer to cross to and from the town centre and installing new street furniture and lighting. I’d like to thank residents and visitors for your continued patience – the end result will be worth it.”
