A major road will remain closed until December after roadworks were delayed for a third time.
Six Hills Way, between Valley Way and Shephall Way in Stevenage, closed on July 22 so a new bridge could be built and was originally intended to be reopened in September.
The reopening was pushed back to October and then once again until mid-November, but a spokesman for contractors Geoffrey Osborne Ltd, which is carrying out the works on behalf of Hertfordshire County Council, said poor weather has delayed the reopening again.
A spokesman Geoffrey Osborne Ltd said: “We regret these further delays to the works in Six Hills Way. The recent rain has prevented us carrying out critical waterproofing works. We are working to complete the scheme and are anticipating that we will complete in December 2013.”
The work was initially due to cost £347,000 but the final figure is now expected to be more.
