The reopening of a road which has been shut since July has been delayed for a second time.
Originally Six Hills Way in Stevenage, between Valley Way and Shephall Way, was meant to be open to motorists from September 13 following roadworks which started on July 22.
The reopening was later rescheduled for this Friday due to complications with the building of a new bridge, but Hertfordshire County Council has revealed this week that the roadworks being carried out by Geoffrey Osborne Ltd on the authority’s behalf are now not expected to be completed until the middle of November.
A spokesman for the county council said: “Our contractors have experienced further delays to the bridge deck replacement works on Six Hills Way due to the complexity of the design changes required as a result of the original construction. The completion date is now expected to be mid November.
“We are working closely with them to ensure that there are no further significant delays and we apologise for any inconvenience during these essential works.”
