The Watford High Street improvement works have been shortlisted in the London Transport Awards 2019 under the ‘Excellence in Cycling and Walking’ category.
The transformation of the High Street has led to better access for pedestrians and cyclists.
Bollards are now in place to prevent vehicles from illegally driving through the town centre.
This, coupled with widened pavements, upgraded bus shelters, waste bins and the relocation of the taxi and blue badge bays has all resulted in an improved town centre experience for residents and visitors to the town.
Since the works finished, there has been a 62% reduction in vehicles in the town centre, resulting in a safer town with cleaner air.
Dedicated cycle lanes now make it safer for cyclists and pedestrians to navigate through the town.
Cyclists can also benefit from 11 new cycle racks that can be found all the way along the High Street where works took place.
