NEW INVESTMENT: Council invest £400,000 on a road in Garston

 Published on: 28th February 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Uncategorized

St Albans Road in Garston is undergoing improvements in an aim to change the look and feel of the area. 

Watford Borough Council carried out meetings in 2019 about making improvements to St Albans Road and received plenty of feedback from the public.

Working closely with local businesses, residents and Hertfordshire County Council, they were able to get together £400,000 to transform the road. 

The aim of the investment will be to create a sustainable and appealing environment for the public to help support local businesses.

A closer look at the drainage systems in town will be just one of the works carried out to help prevent flooding.

Focus on illegal on-pavement parking will be stopped by introducing strategically placed benches.

Trees alongside the road will promote a more sustainable and softer look to the street. Other works include new street furniture, improved paving, tree planting and more cycle friendly routes through the town. 

This road is also a hotspot for fly tipping so the Watford Environmental Health team will be focusing on this to help improve street scene issues.
