Highways chiefs working on plans to improve safety and cut traffic delays around Hitchin’s railway station want to hear from motorists, commuters and others as they put together the blueprint for change.

Changes which could be introduced as part of the Herts County Council scheme include:

A new right hand turn from Station Approach on to Walsworth Road.

A new traffic light-controlled junction to make it easier to get in and out of Station Approach.

Better access for buses.

A new pedestrian crossing with refuge island across Station Approach.

Councillor Terry Douris, Herts County Council’s lead member for highways, said: “These works form part of our commitment to maintain and improve our roads.
