Scheduled roadworks in Letchworth are likely to cause delays for more than a month, starting from today.

Baldock Lane will be closed as Herts County Council’s teams carry out refurbishment works on the bridge decks and carriageway.

The road closure will last until Tuesday, April 17, with emergency access in place.

Work will also begin on the A1(M) northbound from 9pm tonight until 6am tomorrow, which will mean a full closure between junctions 7 and 8. This is so repairs can be done on the central reserve cable.

Bridge survey works on the A1(M) will be carried out at the Baldock services junction and will last four nights and days.

Night works will start today and end on Thursday with working hours of 8pm until 5pm. Day works will be completed next Monday and next Thursday from 9am to 4pm.

This will see single lane closures on the northbound and southbound carriageway.
